Hilton Head Four Challenge #8 - Visit to Museum de l'Orangerie in Paris france

We're in the Monet
8 x 10
Oil on Raymar Panel

This is the 8th Hilton Head Four Challenge.  Photos were sent out and the four of us depicted each photo any way we wanted.  The setting is the Monet exhibit at the 
Musée de l'Orangerie in Paris, France!  A great source photo offered by Chris Werst.  

Three of us chose the same basic setting.  I loved the couple sitting looking at the Monet...and the lady with the red coat off to the right gave it a nice perspective.  I wonder what the couple sitting were talking about...what were they thinking.  I know viewing this artwork that completely covers the walls of the Museum is very overwhelming when  you enter.  It is a wonderful exhibit and not to be missed when you visit Paris!

  1. So much fun to see y'all paint the same photo and interpret it so differently. I would love to go to Paris and see this exhibit - among other things! :-)

  2. Ahhhhh, Paris!!! maybe someday....until then, I will enjoy your paintings...I always wonder what they think about when they're seeing an exhibit!. I love all of these..beautifully painted.

  3. SO happy to see this challenge - of one of my all time favorite places! When we went we bought the fold out cards of the paintings, and framed it and I see it every morning across from my bed! Good for you guys - they are all really great!

  4. I love the color in this one, Maria. The reds sing throughout your composition. I also love how you "boxed in" your colors. Great job!
