Monet Inspired Sponge Painting

My daughter and I love the famous artists. We also love playing around with different paint techniques. We combined the two for these Monet inspired sponge paintings. The sponge created a wonderful backdrop for these impressionist style paintings. We chose Monet’s Water Lilies and Bridge Over a Pond of Water Lilies as our inspiration. These were quick, fun and easy, albeit a little bit messy, but we were both delighted at how they came out.
