Garden in Bordighera, Impression of Morning - Description

Claude Monet considered himself tormented, even obsessed, by the colors he saw. He was determined to capture these colors in his canvases, just as he observed them in nature. While he was in the Italian town of Bordighera, he wrote to a friend, " I haven't yet managed to capture the colour of this landscape; there are moments when I'm appalled at the colours I'm having to use, I'm afraid what I'm doing is just dreadful and yet I really am understating it; the light is simply terrifying" (source: http://quote.robertgenn.com/auth_search.php?authid=299). The bright, clear light and the explosion of native plants were truly inspirational for Monet, who scrambled to get it just right. In "Garden in Bordighera, Impression of Morning" yellow dominates the color palette. The bright, spiky leaves of the trees reach up and out. The hedges below pop and swirl in yellows, browns and greens. A spire of a building is just visible in the center of the image, also in yellows and tans, but is nearly blocked by the vegetation. The sea is just barely visible in the distance, but provides a horizontal anchor to the painting. The viewer has the impression of nature taking over the man-made landscape, of wild plants greeting the bright morning. "Garden in Bordighera, Impression of Morning" is an explosion of yellow and orange, of vibrancy and life.
