Finger Painting by Claude Monet
Claude Monet was the leading French Impressionist landscape painter. In 1872 he painted a picture of a harbour using very loose brushstrokes. He called the picture Impression, Sunrise and exhibited it along with paintings by his friends He helped create changes in the world of art. Moving away from realistic painting or realism, he prepared the way for more modern art. He is the most prolific painters who created more than two thousand five hundred paintings, drawings and pastels in his lifetime.
Monet painted water lilies in all seasons and in all weathers for over thirty years which consists of approximately 300 canvases in total, 40 of them in large format. They are the most celebrated paintings of Monet's career. Today we call these pictures abstract-impressionist paintings, because the surface of the pond fills the entire canvas with light and colour and the picture looks almost abstract.
Materials Required (to be arranged by the participant): Acrylic/Fevicryl Colours, Masking Tape, Black Sketch Pen/ Marker, Drawing Sheet A4 Pencil and Eraser.
