I was in awe of the breadth and variety of Monet’s work. But what struck me most was how he let each scene speak for itself. Doing the same subject over and over, it was not just the palet that changed with the seasons or time of day. His brushwork changed from bold strokes to light wispy flicks of the tip. The thickness of the paint, amount of contrast, no formulas that had to be repeated in every painting.
