Impressionism

The impressionist style of painting is characterized chiefly by


concentration on the general impression produced by a scene of
object and the use of unmixed primary colors and small strokes to
simulate actual reflected light.
Impressionism: a literary or artistic style that seeks to capture a
feeling or experience rather than to achieve accurate depiction.
Artist such as, Claude Monet and Pierre Auguste Renoir are known for
breaking out from the official art style and discovering this new
technique.
For this project, try to investigate the impressionist theory and apply
the practice of using raw color and striation brushwork onto
canvas in an effort to create an impression of the real world
reflected in light.
Pointillism: small, distinct dots of color applied in patterns to form
an image.
