“The landscape helped Monet determine how color expressing the light key was the first ingredient in a painting, not drawing.“
Monet’s method was “expressing light in colour, and not value“.
— Hensche on Painting page 27
Colours do, of course, have inherent value/tone. It’s about putting colour decisions before tone, not tone first and then colour.
