Monet's diorama

   by leiloni johnson for Re-Invent a Work of Art (2013)

i first created the bridge with the flat wood and glued it to the canvas in sections so it would bend. then added the wooden dowels and wire. then i painted it white. then i moved on to the river which was made from the plastic pellets and shredded dyed newspapers. i then painted the background. after that i continued by gluing two of the extra wood pieces together and used the modeling clay to sculpt the large tree from the background.
