Monet is really a great master of the pen, through colors he was able to convey the image, mood and even the state of mind of the depicted heroine. It is difficult, and at times, almost impossible. Just see how the blue color is depicted on the canvases. This is the sky, the general background, the details of clothing, an umbrella, everything has shades of this range, only they are depicted in different ways.

The blue palette is blurred over white, it turns out, as it were, a tangle of color that can and often happens in real life. The sensation of movement is seen in all the main actors: the lady, the clouds, the umbrella, even if it belongs to inanimate nature, but nevertheless incredibly colorfully fits into the image.

The lady’s face is foggy and mysterious, as the master wanted to convey. Not everything is so calm and smooth in her heart, as it seems at first glance at the plot. It is worth thinking about the image, manner of writing and the general background of the work, as completely opposite facts come to mind. This was required to prove, the master achieved what he wanted. With energetic strokes, the artist adds life and movement to the whole plot and to the written image of a lady with an umbrella.

After seeing these amazing works, you can understand the artist the way he wanted it himself and tried to convey to the world.
