About this session

Claude Monet was a founder of French Impressionist painting, and the most consistent and prolific practitioner of the movement's philosophy of expressing one's perceptions before nature, especially as applied to plein-air landscape painting.

Monet's body of work covers all subjects from portraiture, to landscapes, seascapes, gardens and still life. By recreating his paintings from the inside out we develop a powerful tool kit for all our painting activities.

In this painting we will be particularly focussing on the brush strokes Monet uses to depict leaves and flowers.
