Intermediate Homework 10/24/19 Exaggerate! Invent! A La Derain

These pairs of images are meant to invite a bold approach to choosing colors. You can see that the values are believable, but the colors are something else. Do you think  Derain was observing the actual colors? Was he exaggerating them, or maybe inventing them, entirely? Keep color temperature in mind when you choose your interpretation. 

Use the photo as the source of value relationships. Let Derain's paintings give you courage to explore.

This may be Derain by Matisse or Derain by Derain. The web is confused. I'm guessing it's a self portrait.
