At Some Point Every Artist Should Paint Monet Style Water Lilies

Just to clarify, I’m in NO way comparing myself to Monet – ha ha! However, I’ve never painted water lilies before and I couldn’t help being inspired by Monet and his beautiful impressionistic style. I worked side-by-side today with one of my new students (She had a lot of work to do so I figured she might not feel comfortable with me just sitting beside her and staring while she worked. 😉 ) It was awesome to paint alongside someone and talk about art the whole time – now that’s a fun day!

I also completed a little mini flower painting as well today. It was an impasto experiment that I had prepared beforehand. I had painted the paste medium on first in random strokes and the after drying tried to draw out an image from those thick shapes and brush strokes.

Last year one of my youngest students also painted some water lilies – couldn’t help sharing her work again with you! IMG_1742
