It's just a shadow you're seeing that he's chasing…


Monet’s Field of Poppies

I have a routine now. I google for an image on my iPhone and prop it on my knee while I sketch it on my iPad.

I think that’s enough copying for now though. Time to come up with my own idea. A portrait, maybe.

Funny thing about Monet prints… the images that turn up in the google vary so much in colour and tone that you have to decide which version of a Monet painting you are going to paint.

In hindsight, I like the muted second one best but the yellow in the clouds makes me think the bottom-right is closest to the original.

Makes me want to go track down the original to see what colour it is. Anyone seen it?

Same deal with the Sunrise. Check it out.
