Today we are going to look at the work of Frida Kahlo.
Look at the feathers of the parrot. How has she created texture and pattern? Look at the different shades of the leaves. How can you combine colours effectively to get the same effect?
What is it that you like/dislike about this artist’s style? What is it you like/dislike about this painting? How did she create shape/texture/pattern in her artwork? How would you use this style to inspire your artwork?
Today you are going to be painting or drawing a portrait of yourself in the style of Frida Kahlo.
