    He used a wide range of vibrant colors and painted quickly using short brushstrokes. While none of these survived his service, he would call upon his memories of the unique quality of light in Algiers when creating future works. During much of the project the aging Monet was suffering from bad eyesight and lung cancer. At the age of 16, Monet left school for Paris, where instead of studying the great artworks of the masters, he sat by the window and painted what he saw outside. It appears to be foggy. The artist had painted his first renditions in the s but produced the majority of the works during the final two decades of his life.

    Monet won acceptance to the Salon ofan annual juried art show in Paris; the show chose two of his paintings, which were marine landscapes. Besides the cathedral, Monet painted several things repeatedly, trying to convey the sensation of a certain time of day on a landscape or a place. There he met art dealer Paul Durand-Ruel who would become one of his strongest supporters. As I stood there gaping at the pair of astonishing paintings, I had to humbly ask myself: How did he do it, using so few colors? He was then almost blind. He is still considered one of the great French artists of all time.

    Monet's personal life was marked by hardship around this time. When I was ready to paint my book, I hoped I would have the courage to use the same colors Monet used. The subjects did not change, but the visual sensations — due to changing conditions of light — changed constantly. His mother supported his becoming an artist, but his father wanted him to take over the family grocery business. For these paintings, he used thick layers of richly textured paint, expressive of the intricate nature of the subject.
