Antibes in the Morning - Description

Claude Monet said, "What can be said about a man who is interested in nothing but his painting? It's a pity if a man can only interest himself in one thing. But I can't do any thing else. I have only one interest" (source: http://quote.robertgenn.com/auth_search.php?authid=299). Monet was always looking at landscapes and flowers with an eye to painting them. He often took long walks, looking for just the right spot to stop and paint. In "Antibes in the Morning," Monet has captured the moment when the sun is just breaking over the horizon. The tree tops are blazing in yellow, while the trunks and the roots remain in shadow. The trees are painted in true Impressionist style, with quick, heavy brush strokes in contrasting colors placed side by side to suggest shapes and outlines. The bottom of the image is taken up with the sea, painted in blue and green horizontal strokes. The city in the distance is painted all in white and yellow, and appears to shimmer on the horizon like a mirage. The yellow highlights on the buildings in the distance are picked up in the yellow of the tree, while the blue in the sky also reappears in the blue of the sea. "Antibes in the Morning" is a balanced Impressionist painting, with a restrained use of color and a strong technique used throughout.
