‘Summer Picnic’, A Completed Painting – Inspired by Monet


see link: portfolio

Here is one of my completed paintings, inspired by French artist Monet, probably my favourite impressionist.

As they say about art and creation in general, it is about 5% inspiration and 95% perspiration… certainly the case with this example.

This original oil painting is on stretched canvas, see above link for details.

Other paintings will appear in my portfolio in due course.

    I have a print of the Monet painting you mean. You painting is reminiscent of it and gives the same feeling of being alone while being with another.
