In this approach to Impressionism and its methods, the author's instruction sets out to enable amateur artists to paint like the Impressionists. Illustrated throughout with well-known works of art and step-by-step examples, the book shows how the masters achieved their diverse effects and how their ideas and styles can be adapted to today s tastes. Sections on the artists provide insight into individual technique: learn how Monet produced his oil colour sketches, or how Sisley created his landscapes. Using examples of landscapes, portraits, still-life paintings and figures, the book gives a series of demonstrations, showing how to achieve the desired effects in stages, from the initial sketch to the finished painting. An introduction provides historical background to Impressionism, and a section is included on artist s materials. This book should appeal both to beginners and to more experienced artists, as well as those inspired by Impressionist painting.

Review by Feefo
Excellent book giving insight into the lives & equipment used by the impressionists together with step by step guidance to recreating impressionist paintings. Very good value, I would recommend to others interested in loosening up their style. (Posted on 23/07/2015)
