Publisher Description:

Before impressionist painter Claude Monet painted the famous flowers and water lilies from his garden, he created the paintings in this coloring book. These paintings, usually filled with people (often his family or friends) rather than flowers, are from Monet's early years.

Monet helped found the impressionist movement, which used quick brush strokes to capture fleeting moments in time. But this didn't happen right away. An artist's style tends to grow and change over the years, and these paintings show us how Monet developed his art, how he became the revolutionary artist known around the world today.

A selection of paintings from the exhibition Monet: The Early Years are shown in this coloring book. His original artworks are shown on the insides of the front and back cover. You can use those images for reference, or you can color the images based on your own impressions. Feel free to use the extra pages we've included at the back to experiment and develop your own signature style.

Category Description for Artist Coloring Books:

Realistic coloring books for the serious crayon enthusiast! Even your older kids will enjoy this series. Line drawings of works by these famous artists are to be colored with pencil or crayon by your own young artists. Let them experiment with different media and techniques, or try to recreate the original then frame it in your learning space. Inside the front and back covers are color prints of the 22 paintings. Use these to recreate the masterpieces, or use your own colors and see how they compare to the original. In comparison to the Color Your Own Masterpieces collection, this set has a more simplistic outline of the original art. Color Your Own... is more detailed overall, but the series contains more books with compilations of multiple artists while this series offers more artist-specific books. I would say to choose by the artists or periods you want to study. Both brands are quite good. ~ Sara
