9780060747916: How to Paint Like the Impressionists: A practical guide to re-creating your own Impressionist paintings

This superbly illustrated, practical book assesses the techniques and styles of the great masters of Impressionism and shows how their methods can be used and adapted by modern artists.

Impressionism has captured the imagination of people the world over since the first exhibition in Paris in 1874, and nowadays Impressionist exhibitions are always massively over-subscribed. Artists have long sought to understand how and why the Impressionists created their paintings and how their techniques might be replicated today.

This book aims to reveal the answers to these questions. There are sections on the main techniques – pointillism, two-dimensional brushwork, using slabs of colour and palette knife application – and on how the Impressionists used colour so effectively.

Numerous practical step-by-step demonstrations and fascinating deconstructions of major Impressionist paintings are included, to enable the modern painter to re-create the style of the following artists: Monet, Pissarro, Renoir, Cassatt, Degas, Cezanne, Seurat and Van Gogh.
