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

The blue palette is blurred over white, it turns out like a plexus of color, which can and often happens in real life. The sensation of movement can be seen in all the main characters: a lady, clouds, an umbrella, even if it belongs to inanimate nature, but nevertheless fits incredibly colorful in the image.

The lady’s face is foggy and mysterious, which the master wanted to convey. Not everything is so calm and smooth on her soul, as it seems at first glance at the plot. It is worth considering the image, the manner of writing and the general background of the work, when 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 the written image of a lady with an umbrella.

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