Ma Petite Chérie


“Ma Petite Chérie” is a 5 x 7 inch acrylic painting on Ampersand Gessobord panel

I’m still in Matisse mode. I’m sure it is no surprise to you, that I love creating portraits. But I love how sweet and innocent this one feels…and I love the scratched in look and texture…scratching away to reveal the colors underneath. This is a new technique for me. I’m always amazed at how I start off having one vision of a painting in mind, and how it totally becomes something I could never foresee. And I just love her sweet face looking back at me!  

This painting is now available in my online art shop, ArtcyLucy Studio on Etsy.

    • Cindy, thanks so much for taking the time to comment on this painting! I have to admit, she is one of my favorites from this group of Matisse inspired paintings. I am learning so much!

    • Joan, thanks so much for your comment! I am really loving this study of Matisse, and this one painting seems to be set apart from the rest. I think it must be those eyes staring back at us! 🙂
