Lily Pond, Giverny - morning by 

The second of a pair of oil paintings from my Monet’s Garden photos

Oil on canvas – 45 × 90cm
2nd Place – Taree open art show Jul 2013 – oil section

I have recently moved to 2.5 acres at Bonny Hills on the NSW mid north coast from Sydney’s northern beaches. My favourite medium is pastel, and recently I’ve started using oils again. Other inspiration comes from holidays around Australia and overseas.
Original works are also for sale – please contact me by email if you are interested!

    I didn’t think that these looked like pastel when I clicked on them :) Beautiful work Terri! You’ve created that some wonderful feeling in your paintings as you do with pastels

  • Thanks Dianne! I do both pastels & oils in a very similar way, just the oils take soooooo long to dry!

    This is superb Terri. I echo what Di said and I do agree with you about the length of time oils take to dry – LOL!! It is one of the main reasons I switched from oil to pastel. Anyway, you really have captured Mr. Monet’s backyard splendidly! I think he would be envious of what you have achieved!

  • Thank you for such a lovely comment Mrs Robinson! I actually got goosebumps when we went to Monets Garden, I’d been looking forward to it for such a long time!

    Makes for a great set Terri. You’d probably laugh if I told you the largest thing I miss about oils in the smell….lol Seriously I still think the wonderful lustre of an oil painting truly can’t be matched with other mediums and that coming from someone who hasn’t painted with oils in at least for the last 10 years.

  • Thank you Jim! The smell was the biggest thing that stopped me painting in oils 30 years ago, the turps was overpowering in a class situation & was even too strong at home. Now there are some good odourless solvents & I’m back into it. I tried the water soluble oils by Winsor & Newton, although they lack the lustre & buttery texture of real oil paint. so I’m gradually replacing them as they run out.

    Lovely work, Terri. The reflections, especially, beg to be explored; and I’m certainly enjoying doing just that.

  • Thank you Frannie – I had both the canvasses going at the same time – swapping them on the easel to dry between layers
