A white Christmas


Where Monet meets Constable

Some years ago I was called on to do a painting demonstration, and in order to give structure to the lesson took a copy of Constable's 'Hay Wain' and proceeded to translate it into a winter version with snow using a Monet reproduction as a colour reference for the winter weather.
The result as shown still pleases me, replacing the obvious wagon with a fallen bough helps and Monet's colours are always wonderful.
