A life depicting light, Monet

Updated on August 12, 2011
Source

Claude Monet was a prolific impressionist painter in matter of fact he was the founder, and the Impressionism label came out from one of his pieces named Impression - Sunrise. He painted all his life,suffered misery, illnesses and after the death of his first wife(she was only 32) he swear not to be poor again. His determination marked his success.

The only thing that all the impressionist painters really had in common is that they all tried to depict light in a more vivid way, not only as part of the figure or landscape but as light in itself. Monet painted several landscapes, he had a particular way of doing so, he usually painted the same landscape in different day times and weather conditions.

Woman with parasol(umbrella) by Monet is particularly beautiful(all the versions that Monet made of it). It is more than just the woman, the painting itself, it is the idea behind. The wind and light caressing the figure, the grass and the sensation of freedom the subject might have felt there. I tried to make justice to the idea behind but two years and a half ago, my technique was poor and failed to give life to my women in parasol.

Nevertheless, It was a good practice that helped me to see my flaws and keep improving.
