A challenge for Positiv Journal is to do a page in the style of Claude Monet.

I love his paintings but sadly did not manage to see them when they came to London nor have I been to Giverny but that was not going to stop me...

Here's my inspiration 

I've used oil pastels that have been lurking in a drawer since my C&G days for the background 

Blues for the water and some greens to give an idea of the lily pads and then printed off a colouring page for the waterlilies and used the oil pastels again - all in all, not too bad an effort on the colour front  but a huge leap away from the masters art!


  1. Wow Sally, this look beautiful.

  2. Lovely intensity of colour from the oil pastels, and the inspiration is clear as day. Lovely page.
