Part of the river cruise that I took last month included a day trip to Giverny and Monet’s garden. Everything was lush and gorgeous and we got good weather and it was pure, unadulterated heaven. In an effort to not be totally derivative by just recreating his waterlily paintings, I opted to paint some of the flowers I photographed instead. There were so many different kinds of tulips I lost count. Here are 2 quick paintings I did based off of a couple, one fairly delicate and one big and bold:
