Fall Daily: Style Through the Eyes of Claude Monet



Saint-Georges majeur au crépuscule (Eng: Dusk in VeniceSan Giorgio Maggiore by Twilight or Sunset in Venice; 1908-1912; Oil on Canvas. National Museum Cardiff, of Cardiff Whales.

Did you ever wonder what Fall must have looked like through the eyes of impressionist painter Claude Monet? One of my most favorite works of art is his, Sunset in VeniceSaint-Georges majeur au crépuscule. 

Sunset in Venice, was inspired by a trip Monet took with his wife during the Fall season (October-December 1908). It features the Church of San Giorgio Maggiore, and the glorious warm colors created by the sunsets of Fall. 

Monet often painted looking out from his hotel room; however, San Giorgio Maggiore at Dusk appears to have been painted from the waterfront. San Giorgio Maggiore was painted in six various lighting conditions, and varies slightly by the ‘nature of experience.’


                  FASHION STYLE TIPS INSPIRED BY MONET


When I get inspired by anything, the main focus is on what I like, and why. 
Sunset in Venice, is therapeutic to look at, and warm in texture, and color. How can I infuse those positives in my style?
First of all, where is the warmth coming from? 
The soft textures of Monet's brush strokes, warm colors, and gentle shading of ombre transitions, make the entire piece pleasing to the eyes.
Adopting those features into your style, can be accomplished by infusing the same combination of color choices, and the selection of textures or materials that create a soft, warm effect.
