Monet also said: “It’s on the strength of observation and reflection that one finds a way. So we must dig and delve unceasingly.” “When you go out to paint, try to forget what objects you have before you, a tree, a house, a field or whatever. Merely think here is a little square of blue, here an oblong of pink, here a streak of yellow, and paint it just as it looks to you, the exact color and shape, until it gives you own naïve impression of the scene before you.” Then add some people to the scene.

Watercolor is the very best medium for painting water because of its delicate transparency and its freshness. It is majic to watch what ahppens as the colours blend on a wet surface or a raidly scrumbled brush expresses the vibrancy of shimmering color on the ocean surface. Or when a few touches of a dark tone suddenly transform white paper into the bottom of a crashing wave. Because water moves fast, there is something sartisflying about painting it fast. It is nore than an impression... it is an inner vision and it becomes an expression of myself.
