Monet’s Palette and Technique

Monet first moved to the enchanting village of Giverny, 45 miles northwest of Paris, in 1883 at the age of 43. He lived in a specially designed home with gardens until the end of his life in 1926. In this video, artist David Dunlop discusses and loosely demonstrates Monet’s painting techniques, drawing on Monet’s carefully developed and cultivated water-lily garden for inspiration.
