Recently in Art I have been focusing on Picasso and the “Blue” period. Picasso, in my opinion, is one the most diverse and talented artists of all time. His artwork consists of a variety of techniques and styles, showing his extreme talent in all areas of his artistic work. Picasso’s blue period consists of a series of paintings from 1901 and 1904 derived from the emotion of sadness and depression, which result in a spectacular collection of paintings involving mostly the colour blue. I have been able to incorporate his style into my work, as I am focusing on the emotion of sadness and the colour blue. I have been inspired by the emotional and physical elements of Picasso’s work, and will continue to enjoy incorporating his ideas into my own art.
