Artist Study: Monet {part three}

Here's what we're doing today...  

The hands-on part of artist study got put off until Saturday. again.  :)  Maybe it's becoming a habit?!  Well, it's okay.  Saturday school is fine as long as you don't know it's school.  Oh and just so you know, I make no promises about doing this much artist study for every artist!  ;)  I really like Monet...

We're going to notice how Monet captured light through his beautiful portrayal of shadows and reflections.  Then we're going to try and imitate it.  Lots o' fun!  Just wait 'til you see our masterpieces!

We're looking at the following groups of prints for shadow:
Notice how the shadows are not just black or grey but different shades of color...

We'll also talk about what happens to the reflection when the water is moving.

Thanks for the shading links :o)
We were attached to Van Gogh and seemed to study him for ages but sadly my youngest isn't as inspired by Monet.
