Impressionistic Art Techniques

The names of the great Impressionist painters will be familiar to you. Artists such as Claude Monet, Paul Cezanne, Camille Pissarro and Auguste Renoir. When studying their most well-loved Impressionist works, you can’t help but notice their fascination with light – something that led many to leave their studios and venture into nature, creating in the open air so as to better observe how light fell on surfaces and reacted in different situations. 

When observing Impressionistic works, the use of colour may also stand out. It often isn’t as precisely blended as other genres which were prolific in the 1800s, with subjects not as clearly defined thanks to the use of thicker, less precise brush strokes. 

Impressionist painters were inspired by the thought of catching the first glance and replicating a fleeting moment – their first impression of a crowded space for example, or the exact moment a ray of light hit the water. In that sense, some early observers of this technique accused artists of creating pieces in a hurry. 

Rather, they wanted to give the perception of light with contrasting colours, brighter shades and suggest movement in their canvases. 


The history of impressionistic paintings

Roughly produced in a period between 1867 and 1886, impressionistic paintings are now more often categorised by their subject matter and striking technique than the year in which they were created.

Buy mixed media artwork

Mixed media as an art medium is an endlessly fascinating one. From acrylic paints on shredded paper canvas to watercolour and pen impressions of European landscapes, these paintings are the final result of artists looking to experiment when trying to perfect their collective creative visions.

When hearing the term ‘media’, you could be forgiven for thinking this meant mixed media paintings are a modern-day creation, however the likes of Leonardo da Vinci and William Blake were well known for mixing pastels, drawing techniques and washes in achieving the desired effect.

Modern-day examples of mixed media include incorporating text into conventional paintings, with postminimalism conceptual art scenes across the world continuing to blue the lines between creative mediums.

Famous mixed media artists include David Wightman, who uses acrylic paints over textured wallpaper, and Jenna Douglass, who fuses collage, painting, masking, and drawing to display a mixture of lines and shapes.
