The Making of The Dream in Red by Pablo Matisse

“The Dream in Red” after Picasso’s Le Reve and Matisse’s Harmony in Red. With so much red it seems hard to believe that the characters and decoration don’t get lost in it. But Matisse was a master of balancing color and pattern. Picasso’s dream girl is not easily lost. I started off with skin tone similar to The Pink Nude and then realized I had to tone it down. I relied on a dark outline where prudent to make any necessary elements pop. – Pablo Matisse
