Like Matisse’s Windows

Sketch of the view of the San Juans from a condo window by Sarah Sullivan

Like Matisse’s Windows

For the last three weeks I have been thinking about the view from the window. It is so beautiful and the framing of the vista by the window sets the view off splendidly. I looked a few times at some of Matisse’s window paintings, which both motivated and intimidated me. Today I stayed inside and gave it a try. 

This is a gouache and pastel sketch on black paper in a 12 X 12 inch Derwent black sketchbook.
