Gerry - 'My first two Monet!'

Gerry talks about her first Monet paintings and what she has learned.

"In taking just two lessons, I’ve learnt so much, such as:

  1. Mix paints to make colours
  2. Identify texture, perspective and shadows/shading in artwork
  3. How to hold the paintbrush for different parts of the painting

The lesson goes by very fast and at the end of it, you tend to wonder if you will be able to create the same painting without your instruction. If yes, then I would have learnt something.

I’m really pleased with my second attempt."

Regards

Gerry
