After a five month break for studies in Italy and other cities in Europe, and after a little rest and relaxation, I will be back at the National Gallery of Art in Washington, DC beginning Tuesday, March 19. The next masterpiece I will copy is The Willows, which is a beautiful landscape by Claude Monet. It’s located in gallery #80.
The NGA acquired The Willows from the Corcoran Collection and I am pleased that it’s now available for me to copy. I chose it because it reminds me of early spring – a season for which most of us are certainly ready. This tranquil painting is full of Monet’s spontaneous brush strokes and subtle impasto. It also features lovely variations of springtime green.
Come see me between 10:30 and 3:45 on Tuesdays starting March 19. I can’t wait to get started!
