I love painting because you can do so much more with a paintbrush than you can do with a pen or pencil. Lots of different artists inspire me. I particularly like Monet's paintings. I especially like the water lily paintings with the bridge at Giverny which I saw in the Musee d'Orsay in Paris. I also like his oil painting of a poppy field and his paintings of Rouen Cathedral in different lights and colours.
