About this session

Monet's Water Lilies (Fr. Nymphae) ran to over 250 paintings. They are very relaxing to paint, and offer a lot of scope for playing with colour and texture.

To paint in this unfussy way requires:

  • Knowledge of the impressionist method of "cognitive painting" which we teach at Inglis Academy.
  • Confidence in yourself, to " paint through " our 4 steps to Success.
  • Technique - very relaxed, coordinated and sensitive brushwork.
