Impressionist painting techniques, although once were looked down upon by the world, are now a popular way of doing art. These techniques are more into highlighting the real-world scenes and landscapes.
Broken Colour Technique
The Broken Colour Technique is the one that brings a ‘patchwork’ appearance to the painting. Even on the Sri Lankan paintings that are on display at Sri Lankan Art Gallery, you may clearly observe this technique.
Impressionist Painting techniques value the power of natural light. This is what brings a more realistic vibe to the painting, be it a morning scene or that in an evening.
These techniques will not force the artist to wait until a paint stroke dries. It uses layers and layers of wet paint and this gives a softer edge to the painting.
Minimal usage of black
Impressionists hate the black colour, and they don’t at least use the darker shades on their canvasses. When black is needed, bright colours come for their help (to create dark contrasts).
Impressionists also loved undefined paintings! They loved to create paintings with no sharp edges and exact objects. But still, the paintings look so much greater and classy!
