Here’s a little square of blue

Heydar Aliyev Centre, Baku, Azerbaijan, March 2017

“Try to forget what objects you have before you … Merely think, ‘Here is a little square of blue, here an oblong of pink, here a streak of yellow,’ and paint it just as it looks to you, the exact color and shape, until it gives you your own impression of the scene before you.”
– Claude Monet


Now over to all of you. Do come and join us in our Saturday six-word musings.

I’ll admit that many of us openly break the numeric rule and share far more words (all excellent of course!) so the key rule is to have a title of six words – and then create around that the post that you desire! Perhaps in bunches of 6 words if you’re feeling inspired.

To join the challenge, please put a link in your post to the URL of this post. Then come back here and leave us a comment. If you have any problems with linking, just put your own URL into the comment. And do feel free to socialise digitally – tweet, instagram, flickr, etc. with the hashtagtags #SixWordSaturday and #6WS.

    1. I’m hopeless at painting too! I did a beginner’s drawing class a few years ago and felt there was some hope of improvement. So yes, you should definitely give it a go out in the Algarve.
      And there’s a great impressionism exhibition on in London at the moment – about the impressionists in London – at Tate Britain. a to-do before you go out to Algarve.
