Monet’s intention was not to create a detailed representation but rather to convey the fleeting atmosphere and the sensory experience of being immersed in nature.
  4. The Play of Light and Shadow: One of the most remarkable aspects of this painting is Monet’s skillful depiction of light and shadow. The dappled sunlight filters through the leaves and branches of the apple trees, creating an interplay of light and shadow on the ground below. This technique enhances the overall luminosity of the painting, evoking a sense of tranquility and a feeling of being bathed in sunlight.
