Hommage: A Monet Breakfast

This is a hommage to the great painter Monet. He is most famous for his water lilies paintings and was known for being the father of impressionism. This artwork contains original painting, crafts and photography. All own work.

Dieses Projekt ist mir persönlich sehr wichtig. Ich bin ein Fan von Monet und durch mein Kunstabitur (ja, tatsächlich aus Kunstinteresse) habe ich Viel darüber gelernt. Und da frage ich mich, wie kann ich Monet's Bilder wieder aufgreifen? Nun, impressionistische Fotografie ist, meiner Meinung nach, schwierig weil ein Foto zu viel Detail aufgreift oder sich in der Unschärfe verliert. Deswegen habe ich eine Kombination aus Malerei, Fotografie, Photoshop und Handwerk gewählt. Ich würde mich sehr über ein Feedback freuen! 

This Project is very important to me. I am a fan of Claude Monet and through my studies of art I've come across several of his artworks. And I asked myself, how can I use and work with them? Well, I think impressionistic photography is difficult because of too much detail or too much blur and therefore for this picture I have chosen a combination of painting, crafts, photography and photoshop. I would really appreciate feedback. 
All work is handmade and original work.

Using acryl texture gel I was able to create a yogurth like texture and gloss. The 'yogurth' is mixed with 'chocolate' and a few 'berries' hence the color.
