For this painting, I used a reference photo I took during a visit to the house and garden of the famous impressionist painter Claude Monet in Giverny, France. We were there in October last year purposely to see the place. We were informed then that the best period of the year to visit the place is during summer when the flowers are in their growing and blooming stage. One disadvantage however, during summer is that the place is very busy because of the many tourists and students visiting the place. We were there in the fall, so most of the flowers were either in their wilting stage or some were totally gone. Anyhow we promise ourselves then that we will visit the place again during the flowering season.
The size of this painting is 30x40cm, and in watercolor.
