An easy-to-master, fun-to-do, step-by-step guide to making your own Impressionist paintings.

In this approach to impressionism and its methods, the author’s instruction enables amateur artists to paint like the impressionists. Paint with the Impressionists is illustrated with well-known works of art, and shows how the masters achieved their effects and how their ideas and styles can be adapted today.

An introduction provides historical background to impressionism, and a section is included on artists’ materials available then and now. Demonstrations show how to achieve the desired effects, from the initial sketch to the finished painting.

Sections on the artists provide insight into individual techniques. You will learn how to recreate the style of Claude Monet’s landscapes, Paul Cézanne’s still lifes, or Edgar Degas’s figures, and see your own impressionist skills develop from the first brushstroke to the finished painting.

Author Jonathan Stephenson carried out his own painting experiments to help identify how the impressionists must have worked, making this guide extremely user-friendly.
