A few years back I painted a Monet waterlilies painting. It actually was a demonstration to my students in how to work at the project they were being assigned.
The school library was throwing away books that were very old. Some of them I saved as old classics but a lot of them were the ones on which my students could paint. I showed how they could imitate an artist's style while painting both cover and back of a book.
This painting was a Kandinsky inspired painting. The book itself was written in 1964 and it was about Atoms. I am sure the information in the book is outdated by now. I like to paint in abstract just as a wah to loosen up my tight painting style.
