Picasso’s Coastal City by the Sea – Painted Paper Artwork


Cannes, France was a small fishing village, barely noticeable in comparison with different small cities alongside the Mediterranean Coast. By 1940, the city grew to become a big vacationer resort attracting the wealthy and well-known, who would dock their massive yachts within the bay when visiting. Discover the Palm Bushes that line the bay together with all sailboats within the water. Pablo Picasso liked capturing the busy city within the south of France and painted many alternative views of the attractive sea.

With pencil sketch out Seaside concepts: Buildings, Shoreline, Palm Bushes, Sailboats, Clouds, and so on. Subsequent paint shapes and background with tints and shades of blue tempera paint. TIP: It’s OK to point out brushstrokes from mixing the white and blue tempera paint on the paper. Let Dry.

Use oil pastels to stipulate all shapes after which add patterns to the varied outlined shapes.

My college students liked mixing their shades of blue colours on the paper!
