Claude Monet is my most favoured artist. The founder of Impressionism.
Art – not my best subject. Thank goodness for Photoshop filters. For this Weekly challenge I was inspired by Monet and when I think of Claude Monet I think of his wonderful garden at Giverny. This garden was his muse and he designed it like a painting, full of wonderful colour and aesthetic beauty. I had also commented on Laura Macky’s beautiful weeping willow photograph as it reminded me of a Monet painting, and so my theme was borne.
I have been lucky enough to visit twice and both times I have found something different to see. The first time it was overcast and cloudy but still the crowds came. I would give anything just to be in the garden alone for a few minutes to feel something like Claude Monet must have felt every time he visited his garden.
For three of the photographs I chose oil painting from the Filters tab in Photoshop. Not really a painting and not really a photo – Its not something I have used before but for this challenge I thought it wouldn’t hurt to experiment a little.
What do you think?
