Monet-inspired Poppy Fields
12 DEc | 10-1pm
Learn colours, values and depth by joining our Claud Monet-inspired painting workshop and recreating his legendary ‘Poppy Fields’ painting. This painting is an excellent example of simplifying the “noise” – the countless colours, values, shapes, lines, or other little details you are confronted with when you look at nature in life. Monet extracted the bare essence of the scene and transferred that onto the canvas. Monet relied almost entirely on hue and saturation contrast to create interest within the stipulated areas of his paintings. This technique is challenging but highly effective if you succeed, so why not book a class with us to improve this technique?

Alfred Sisley was the most consistent Impressionist landscape painter in his dedication to painting landscape en Plein air (i.e., outdoors). He pioneered French Impressionism, carrying out the movement’s original philosophy throughout his career.
