Impressionists Paintings

     A type of style of painting that many people enjoy is an impressionist painting. This style is created by the artist concentrating on a general impression that may be created by a specific object or even a scene.

Many of them are usually landscaped scenes. The artist then uses unmixed primary colors and tiny strokes of the brush to create a look the copies an actual reflected light.

This type of painting was created between 1867 and 1886 by a group of painters that includes Monet, Renoir, Pissarro, Sisley, Morisot, Guillaumin, and Bazille. All of these artists had similar techniques and the same approach to painting.

One major characteristic of this type of painting is that the artist attempts to record reality through a visual picture that is accurate and uses transit effects of color and light in order to do so. One of the first theories of this style of painting is that these artists believed that the color should be directly dropped onto the actual canvas by the brush instead of first mixing it onto a color palette.

Many now know that the idea behind the impressionist style is not just this, although many were created this way, but instead, the idea that it is more about the state of mind and not solely the technique. Therefore, the ultimate goal of the idea behind these paintings is to capture the light in a scene.

So, many of these paintings are exactly that. They are scenes of landscapes and beautiful outdoor pictures of scenery.
