Other mental benefits of painting are sharpening our memory, improving problem-solving skills, and developing a positive outlook on life. It is also a great stress reliever and it promotes emotional welfare.

The first one is San Maggiore at dusk (1908-1912). The church of San Giorgio Maggiore al Crepuscolo is Claude Monet’s subject in his painting of San Giorgio Maggiore at Dusk. It comes with a version in Cardiff and a version in Japan, and both versions are exhibited in a museum. As seen on the painting, it is focused on the sunset and a mysterious building which seems like it’s floating. The Cardiff and Japan versions also differ in terms of the lighting condition. The second painting is Bridge over a pond of water lilies (1899). The painting, “Bridge over a Pond of Water Lilies” is inspired from Claude Monet’s very own pond near his property in Giverny. The footbridge he installed is a Japanese-style footbridge. Monet realized how magnificent his pond was which immediately became his subject of the masterpiece, leading to a series of paintings that focus on his water lily garden which includes this popular Bridge over a Pond of Water Lilies. Let’s see what’s next on our list of easiest famous paintings to recreate for beginners. At last, but not least let’s see The scream (1893). There are four versions of The Scream, a masterpiece by Edvard Munch, and these versions are created as paintings and pastels. His inspiration for his painting was when he recalled a time he was walking during a sunset and felt tired. He said he could sense nature and even heard it scream. Looking at this masterpiece, you can sense dark emotions like suffering, but it is always up to your way of interpreting an artwork on what the painting depicts.
