Final Project

     For my final project I decided to do a painting of my home town. I was inspired by Antibes in the Morning by Claude Monet. He painted this in 1888 and it's an oil on canvas. He does amazing paintings of landscapes and I like the detail and non realistic quality to them. I found it interesting that he wrote a letter to his future wife while working in the Mediterranean saying, "How beautiful it is here, to be sure, but how difficult to paint! I can see what I want to do quite clearly but I'm not there yet. It's so clear and pure in its pinks and blues that the slightest misjudged stroke looks like a smear of dirt."
