The Studio Boat

by Claude Monet

I liked this painting because I like the use of the colors and I like the shade of blue used on the boat. I also liked how realistic and peaceful and tranquil the scene looks.

This impressionistic painting of a boat on the water was painted in 1874. Claude Monet painted it shortly after he moved to Argenteuil.

He bought a boat then converted it into a floating studio.

He kept it moored near his home and used it to get a vista of the riverbank from the water.

As seen here, he also painted it from the bank to study the effects of shadow and reflection at a distance.
