Today, I’ll be sharing my ode to Monet – that most incredible of watercolour painters! I’ve always loved his paintings, especially those he did at the gardens in Giverny. I’ve done my best to recreate the feeling of the colours he used, in my resin version.


The lily, lily pads and damsel flies are 3D printed pieces. For each piece, I poured the tinted resin in them separately, and let them cure. While that was happening, I used tinted resins to create the background on a large 12″ x 24″ canvas.

Honestly, this is another case of “the photo doesn’t do it justice” – and I’m not just saying that! In person, you can really get the feeling of the water and movement.


This is one of Monet’s most famous paintings, done in 1906, simply titled ‘Water Lilies’.

I snipped this quote from the Art Institute of Chicago, which describes the above painting

“By the time he painted Water Lilies, which comes from his third group of these works, he had dispensed with the horizon line altogether. In this spatially ambiguous canvas, the artist looked down, focusing solely on the surface of the pond, with its cluster of vegetation floating amid the reflection of sky and trees. Monet thus created the image of a horizontal surface on a vertical one.”


I spent some time this week, putting the hanging hardware on all of my paintings (alcohol ink, water colour & resin). Not my favourite job to do, but it needs to be done! After all, if you’re going to purchase a piece of art, you want to be able to display it, as soon as you get home, right?

Thanks for spending some time with me today; if you’re a Monet lover as well, I hope that you approve of my ‘ode to Monet’ with this art piece. Leave me a comment, and let me know what you think, please! Have a wonderful long weekend, my friend.

I've always liked to create things, but I'm not a great artist, or sculptor, or any type of 'traditional' artist - but I love to create! I love the satisfaction of a completed project. Whether a card, painting or other project - as long as it can create a smile, evoke a feeling, or some type of reaction in the recipient. I hope you will enjoy sharing my creations, and occasional ramblings; I'd enjoy having you create with me! :)

I love to read what you have to say! Thanks for commenting ;)
