16 x 12 Oil Painting by Pat Fiorello
Here's an example of taking multiple reference photo's to create a scene. Below are 4 different photo's I used to develop this painting as well as a little thumbnail sketch. Here's where artistic license comes in. I loved the lush and colorful gladiolus but wanted a bit of Monet's house in the background to give a sense of place. So I used a bit of the house from another photo and a weeping willow from a different photo. Also liked the idea of a path to lead you in. That is very characteristic of that garden. Lots of narrow paths surrounded by an abundance of colorful flowers.
If you've ever dreamt of seeing Monet's Garden, I have an opportunity for you to join me for a very special opportunity to paint there on location June 4-11, 2015. For more information, see: this flyer or website for additional information and how to register. Feel free to contact me if you have any questions. Space is limited to 8 participants, but there are still a few spots available.

|Gladiolus in the Garden|
8 x 8 Oil Painting by Pat Fiorello
This is a small study of some of the vivid flowers in the garden with Monet's home in the background.
There is still space available if you'd like to join me for the painting experience of a lifetime. We'll be painting the landscape around Giverny and visit Monet's Garden each day to paint after the tourists are gone so you can paint, photograph and enjoy the gardens without distraction.
For more information, see http://www.artcolonygiverny.com/ or a flyer on my website. Feel free to contact me if any questions or if you would like to register.
