Monet is done :)


"Monet's Garden" by Belinda Lindhardt, Oils on gallery wrapped canvas

Well it looks like i am done on my Monet inspired works. There are parts i am not happy with but i have lots of other things i want to progress onto so i am calling it done for the purpose of the exercise that it was.

Doing this work has really helped me to open up and be freerer with my strokes and colours and everything basically. It has really helped me work through some of my issues regarding painting everything smooth but also flat. I really enjoyed this one. I do admit while i did initially hope to stick to Monets palette and not include black i did get the black out in the end. But i feel like i warranted it and i had learnt my lesson with that whole theory.

So all in all a great little exercise i learnt alot. :) I am also glad that i stuck with this one enough to just finish it. i tend to move on with my paintings so i am glad i got it to the point where i am finished rather than put it away in the cupboard half done.

The oils are still wet so i will post a better pic once they dry a bit :)
