Lily Pond Tribute To Monet
Painting - Acrylic On Canvas
This is a peaceful colourful vivid acrylic painting with mixed media on a large 48x48 gallery canvas using mixed media materials and Golden Open acrylics with gel mediums.
It has silver metallic paint in it which reflects the light and many layers of transparent paint.
My dog and I walk by the lily pond and the water with all the lily pads and bulrushes every day. She catches frogs and I sketch on the rocks and we love the water. I wanted to pay tribute to my favourite inspirational artist but I really only looked at his paintings and then put on the music and painted this without further reference as it is my interpretation and my own creation. I could never hope to compare to him but I want to celebrate his use of colour and my own love of colour in my painting.
This landscape is one of my very favourites and I had to stand on a ladder to create a lot of it (kinda scary when you see how I paint) I like to paint to music and kinda dance while I paint so the ladder was tricky. Enjoy the beautiful prints and cards. Original has sold.
