This is from a photo reference of my sister in Monet's garden in Giverny. I had in mind Monet's painting of a girl in the poppys. This is Neo-impressionism: Figure standing amongst flowers in a garden. Use of strong tonal green with red and white contrasting shapes. I kept the detail loose with emphasis on brushstrokes creating movements through the composition. There is a conscious balance in the composition, using both proportions and sweeping movements to create visual excitement. It is unashamedly figurative art but without the detail of photographic realism.
