I have just spent some time immersed in France and Monet, so I have chosen one of his favourite seaside resorts for this month’s One Four Challenge.
This month’s photo showing the chalky rock formations of France’s Alabaster Coast.
On the town boardwalk there is an example of one of Monet’s paintings of these chalk cliffs. I think he must have been standing partway up the equally scenic hill on the other side to get his bird’s eye angle.
Monet’s painting of this rock formation and the village beach. Here he was playing with the split complementary tones of orange, purple-blue and blue-green.
Since this is Monet we’re talking about I have again used the photo app Psykopaint with the ‘Monet’ paintbrush, and it worked better on this image than it did with my purple smoke tree. However, Monet’s colours are much more adventurous, and next week I’ll see if I can add some of his panache to mine…
