About this session

In this session my teaching methods will show you how much you already know about art! Bring your enthusiasm and love for paintings and I will show you how to express your taste on the canvas.

Monet painted quite a number of paintings showing the Japanese bridge over the lily pond in his garden at Giverny. This is the second from 1899.

This is truly living, breathing art! It demonstrates the great legacy left us by the masters of western art. They have left us a body of work within which we can learn and grow at the same time.

What will we learn in this painting?

We learn to decipher the language of brush strokes and indicate them in the approriate colour. Once this is done we develop these textures into the finished painting.
