collecting colours over a cup of coffee...

If you are a lover of printed words, you would know how much of your time is taken by books alone. Then one day, sooner or later, you discover a huge vacuum within that you know next to nothing about other art forms. This blog is an attempt to fulfil one such lacunae in the art of painting. We intend to look up a random painting and upload it with a link here every day whilst having our daily cuppa coffee. In this way at least we hope to be better acquainted with colours, colourers and the schools than what we are now.If you wish to be a part, you know where to shout.

Haystacks at Chailly at Sunrise

Haystacks at Chailly at Sunrise, 1865, Claude Monet

An early representation of haystacks. When Monet did the famous haystack series later in his painting life he is said to have propped multiple canvases with each canvas capturing the play of light on hay at a certain point of time in the day. The BBC series on The Impressionists shows Monet flitting from one canvas to another in sheer joy as the light changes.
