Imitate the Masters – Paul Signac – Chalk Pastels

We artist can learn so much from other artists, especially the masters who came before us. I love Impressionism artwork because of the rawness and freeness it represents.

Paul Signac / French / 1863-1935

I love that Signac experimented with various mediums. He creating paintings in oil and watercolor. He made etching and lithographs. But it is his pen-and-ink sketches I love.

For this Imitate the Masters piece I used chalk pastels to recreate Signac’s famous St. Tropez, the Shipyard and the Lighthouse (1893).
