I painted a bay in Baltimore in the style of impressionist because my artist was a impressionist. Impressionist paintings are very different that many styles. Impressionist techniques are short brush strokes using light colors. The painting appears almost blurry but the viewer is still able to put the picture together with their eyes. My photo is from when i was in Baltimore, Maryland in the bay during the summer off and it is of boats sitting in the water. When i was painting this canvas i used light colors and mixed all my paints with only white. The painting took a lot of time because i put layers of different shades for the sections, Overall i don't think it turned out very good because of poor planning i would have liked to have a different artist, but it was fun to try something new. Next time i will prep better for any of my art pieces because i am learning that preparation is the key to success to anything. I also took out a lot of the background because the technique is already a struggle so it help make it easier . I have learned that Monet is a awesome artist and i can appreciate him more, the more i paint in his style.
