One of the most famous paintings in the world above all. Monet loved his garden at Giverney. He was a knowledgeable gardener as well as a prolific painter. I have studied his work many times in order to “loosen up’ my own work. This little gem, after Monet, was not easy to accomplish being so tiny! A limited very subtle pallet and a careful blending of colours achieved the desired result.
Even after so many years of painting it never ceases to amaze me how many colours I can get from 4 or 5 tubes of paint.40 shades of green went into this one, with the washing dancing on the line providing a vivid contrast, a really amusing painting, a talking point for your wall.
