It is no secret that I love the impressionist movement. But how exactly do you paint in an impressionist style? Many artists seem to use it as an excuse to paint sloppily.

Most of the time I focus on colorful landscapes and seascapes, but this post is a change of theme. I will be taking a closer look at some of the most dramatic paintings I have come across. These paintings demonstrate just how powerful art can be and how much emotion we are able to depict

I’m sure that as an abstract artist you have a love of paint. You may have a favorite brand or type, and you may have more tubes of color than you can shake a stick at. Don’t we all love collecting new tubes of gorgeous paint? However, mediums allow you to get more from your paints. They can go farther and be more versatile. While bottles of medium are not as “sexy” on the store shelf, I’d like to recommend three for you to try. They’re worth adding to your art supplies!

The clouds are better in the first version, but I think the horizontal shadow in the foreground is too strong. I like the color in foreground of the second as well as the softer, lighter value. I think I'll crop the bottom of the second so there's not quite so much real estate down there.

By Dianne Mize in Art Tutorials > Painting Tutorials There’s something we demand of music we hear, of theatre we see, of novels we read, even of people we invite to dinner. . . we demand they not be boring. Boredom, believe it or not, can unravel an artwork as quickly as chaos. How can we avoid it in our painting? There are a number of strategies painters use to keep their work interesting, but one of the most important ones is […]
