Slava Korolenkov says:
"If you are fascinated by Claude Monet's painting as much as I do, you have to follow to his way with the sketchbook. I really want you and me to be imbued with the atmosphere of these amazing places and began to write as powerfully as the great French artist wrote."
"Don't think about what you see in front of you - about the tree, the house, the field, anything. Just think this is a small blue square, there is a pink figure, and continue do it until you have an impression of the picture that is before your eyes "- Monet advised young artists.
