Tonight we painted in Monet's Garden during after hours when the garden is only open for artists to paint. There were only 15 or 16 people in the garden painting. Some people were painting the lilly pond and others were scattered throughout the garden.
Monet stopped by to see how our painting was coming along. I painted the view looking down the grand allee path looking toward Monet's house.
We are really lucky to have Ruth Wolfe, a talented garden designer from San Diego in our group. She ably answered all our questions about the flowers we saw in Monet's garden and explained his principles of garden design.
