Monet's Bridge

I took this photo of the replica of the Monet Bridge at the Botanical Gardens Monet Exhibit in July 2012. Monet has always been one of my favorite impressionists and his waterlily paintings are incredible. So when the garden was having an exhibit of Monet, I knew that I would be there. And I was. What I did on this photo was use the impressionist brush. I found it after a long search and using PSE help, which was actually helpful. I'm going to play around with this brush and use some filters as I have an idea for another layout.

How cool, Carol and I love your Impressionist painting of Monet's bridge - it came out great! I really had fun with that brush after a bit of frustration and I can't wait to see more work from you. I really like how you showed us both photos and Monet's work, too -- all works of art! I also really like the pretty watercolor background you used and your title is so pretty in the different colors. Great embellishments, too! Thanks for joining the challenge and adding a gorgeous piece of Impressionist digital Art to the Monday Challenge Gallery. Lovely work! :)

I've spent a long time looking at your impressionist painting Carol - so many interesting colours and textures. Mmm I'm a great Monet fan too.

How fun to do your own version of Monet's bridge! I like the three different version on the page. The crane, reeds and water lilies fit in beautifully with the pond setting.

Both impressions are very dreamy. I love that blue bridge! The waterlily and heron embellishments are right at home here. Great alpha, too. I just love the colors of this layout!
