A Stroll in Giverny…

PHJ_4157-LR_DPW

I have been hiking these last days in Normandy since I have a country house  in the surroundings. As most of you know, Impressionism has its nest in this wonderful area and, especially in Giverny. This little village is famous because of Claude Monet House and Gardens. I felt I had to make a very modest tribute to his memory. This landscape explains the reason why Impressionism birth found its place there !  The hue palette are exactly these…

Sure, I played around adding some texture in the sky to do it the Monet’s way, but I promise there is no cheating in the tonalities : these are true colors. I admit, This photograph of Nature may be more impressionistic than documentary but it gives an accurate sense of atmospheric and weather conditions, and an overall feeling of the scene. My main purpose is to convey a a mood or a feeling that Nature has evoked, to me, and… I’m sure, to these painters. I like to single out what makes these instant so magic, to express some kind of connection between a natural design, a light and a my perception of things rather than to provide specific, factual information. By emphasizing a mood feeling, I incorporate my interpretation in the resulting image.
