Painting a Claude Monet's piece

- because I'm in love with the brushstrokes I lost sight of the main purpose: study colour relationships.
- the "white" of the canvas is warmer.
- next time with impressionism: paint at 100% opacity to avoid blending.
- maybe muddiness can be avoided by applying pure colours.
- an initial tonal value study is useful.
- to concentrate in colour relationships, work with stains or bigger brushes.
- try to simplify the image into zones.
- identify the colours that are dominant, subdominant, subordinates and accents.
- Monet was one of the greatest!
