Essai de figure en plein-air : Femme à l’ombrelle tournée vers la gauche

Claude Monet, 1886 Monet painted this woman with a parasol en plein air as she stood in the open air blowing at her back. The tall grasses bend with the wind and her scarf flies before her. Maybe, like Hayao Miyazaki’s Nahoko and Jiro, she dreams of flying, or, in her mind, pictures herself painting this scene on the green hill with white clouds floating behind in the blue.
