Monet’s Garden at Giverny, France.
Claude Monet is famous for painting many subjects, water lilies, cathedral facades, footbridges, and of course, his garden’s at Giverny, France. I visited Monet’s gardens with my mother a few years ago-the ultimate mother/daughter field trip. Much like the great Impressionist artist himself, I focused on the natural sunlight as it tickles the rows of flowers that line the walking path underneath the Japanese inspired arbor. I attempted to paint in a loose brushstroke, abstracted way that captured the light and texture of the garden rather than on an illustrative approach. If you can’t visit Monets Garden, this is the next best thing-bring the garden to you to enjoy every day of the year.
