Poppies near Argenteuil

For our final blog, I chose to discuss one of my favorite artist, Claude Monet. This painting is called Poppies near Argenteuil, 1873, oil on canvas. First of all, the colors are stunning. The red of the poppies against the green of the field are complementary colors and work together to make each other appear brighter. The sky is perfectly blue and overall, the painting was created with very soft brush strokes, and gives the image a very serene feel. To be the women out in the filed with her child, seems like the perfect way to spend a sunny Sunday afternoon in France. Flawless!
