Master the impressionist painting style with Painting the Impressionistic Landscape!

The Impressionist movement that began 130 years ago set artists free to experiment outdoors, capturing the fleeting effects and many moods of sunlight in their paintings by juxtaposing contrasting colors. Although those colors may not actually be apparent in nature, on canvas and paper they appear spontaneous and naturalistic. The skill is in knowing how to select and apply them. Impressionistic painting has not remained static over the decades. Artist Dustan Knight walks you through the techniques to achieving brilliant effects in a contemporary style. Using easy to work with watercolor and acrylic, she demonstrates through her own paintings, as well as others she has selected, the step-by-steps for dramatic atmospheric vistas and intimate garden landscapes.
