Bazille and Camille (study for Déjeuner sur l’herbe), is a painted study for the final painting. Camille has been very nearly transposed from the chalk drawing into this oil but there does seem to be an interaction between the two figures. Notice how the dappled, light-green leaves in the upper right-hand corner interact with the dark, lacy branches in the bottom left. The overall effect of the painting is one of freshness and light, despite the large areas of very dark shading.
A lot of people do not care for Claude Monet...but I love them. They tell us stories of what it was like during that time period. The use of color is amazing.
