"Everyone discusses my art and pretends to understand, as if it were necessary to understand, when it is simply necessary to love."

"The richness I achieve comes from Nature, the source of my inspiration."

Impressionism was Claude Monet Major Movement. He was known as a founder and main provider to the impressionist movement.

Impressionism isis a 19th-century art movement characterized by relatively small, thin, yet visible brush strokes, open composition, emphasis on accurate depiction of light in its changing qualities, ordinary subject matter, inclusion of movement as a crucial element of human perception and experience, and unusual visual angles. Impressionism originated with a group of Paris-based artists whose independent exhibitions brought them to prominence during the 1870s and 1880s.


This is the photos that I wail be evaluating for the second portion of my project. This painting above, the sunrise, uses many tints and shades of the color blue. It also tons the color blue with a bit of intensity on the color as well. I put shows a bit of complementary with the color orange being the sun and a bit lighter in the sky background. It is almost a sketch but he makes it look as if it took him hours and days to perfect with the shades and flowing in and out of a fogged tube feel. Also the shading on the human or boaters also looks as if it is part of a blue scheme. He did a great job of showing distance in his placement of the objects and boats to show distance. Overall this was my favorite photo because of the emended detail, and easily critiqued because of the noticeable blue/complementary scheme. This Painting is located at Musee Marmotten Monet in Paris, France.
