more fog

10x11 pastel on watercolor
Fog continues to inspire all I do. It changes everything. On this particular morning it was raining and the clouds were so low.
 Monet's fog series from Giverny and London are always amazing to refer to when thinking fog. When Monet was in London he wrote, "I love London. It is a mass, an ensemble, and it is so simple. Then, in London, what I love, above all, is the fog." Monet said that he loved the way the fog"dematerialized" the river.Here are two beauties of his.

Monet's London

Monet's series of fog on the Seine river are my very favorites of his. Seeing these works is like stepping into a beautiful dream. Also, I love your foggy painting, Loriann. It's rendered with great sensitivity with the subtle shifting of values.

I love that fog is so many colors; you're obviously exploring that. Beautifully!
A word of caution: you never know what will appear unexpectly...

Monet's are nice but, seriously, I like your painting more.
Don't forget, if you ever need inspiration for fog paintings .... You know the rest ;)

I love the first painting on this post. It is wonderful swirling fog. I can sense the weight of it.
