A wonderful and informative book for all ages. Claude Monet is one of the founders of the impressionistic style of painting, he is well known for his en plein air painting of his gardens in Giverny, France, early 1900’s.
Monochromatic green was the other theme in today’s painting lesson. The mixing of green; blue/yellow, white/green, black/green, and more then placing them as high lights and shadows. The story of Linnea in Monet’s garden has a page where the Nasturtiums cover the ground and path, chop sticks were used to dip into the orange paint and decorate the green path.
