Impressionism

Impressionistic painters can also paint landscapes and flowers in an impressionistic style. The style is attributed largely to spontaneity and less on drawing techniques although there are elements of representation. Textures, brushstrokes and palette knife painting are all key focus of the impressionist painter. The subject matter will vary whether it is landscape, cityscape or floral work but it will be characterised by textures. Some impressionist painters will take impressionism a step further and are inspired by pointillism a branch of impressionism made famous by the artist Seurat. Pointillism is style which builds up a picture from dots.
