Monet's weather

How to paint like Monet...

Presenter Mark Speight visits Claude Monet's garden at Giverny near Paris to create a painting on location using Monet's Impressionist style. There are lots of tips on observation, using colour, capturing a sense (rather than every detail) of a scene and broad stroke painting.


Rare old film of Monet painting in his garden

Monet painted outdoors on a huge canvas, right in front of what he was painting - under the sheler of big umbrellas.

In this amazing film you can see how he looks over at the pond before mixing a colour on his palette and adding a dab of paint to his picture.
