12 x 16 Oil Painting
By Pat Fiorello
Getting ready for the workshop in Giverny France, so revisiting some of my photo's from the last time I taught there. The garden is somewhat of a paradox, at times it is peaceful and you get the sense of being in a sacred space and other areas are energetic, chaotic and often described as a "riot of color". Monet was highly involved in how and where things were planted, the color combinations.
At one point standing at the end of the bridge, I noticed if you looked across the garden there was a direct line to his front door. No accident I'm sure, all part of his vision and plan.
There are still some spot available if you'd like to join me and experience this artists dream come true for yourself. The dates are June 4-11 and the workshop is open to artists of all experience levels and mediums. I'll be working in both oils and watercolors as far as demo's go. For all the details click here. There is also a website with additional information and registration instructions.
If you'd like a glimpse of the garden, here is a short video of head gardener, James Priest talking about the garden. During the workshop we'll have a unique opportunity to hear more from James in a relaxed setting.
