Haystacks : Snow Effect 1891 by Claude Monet 1840 - 1926

Chosen by National Galleries of Scotland for their 2010 Art Competition. One of the 30 different pictures of the series he painted showing his interest not in the haystacks but in how light affects them from Summer when the sun is high through to winter and the snow covering them and the landscape.

Here hand made paper has been used to form the landscape and a similar paper has been reversed to difine the shadow. The sky is made from layers of georgette to reveal the movement of the light and the depth of colour.

The haystacks are created from strands of wool of different thicknesses which show the change of colour.
