In the style of Claude Monet
Claude Monet can be called a textbook impressionist. In his paintings, all the main features of impressionism are separate strokes, trembling of the air and the “freeze frame” effect. He painted not objects and people, but a single color construction of highlights and spots.
Monet also exaggerated impressionism, depicting the same landscape dozens of times – at different times of the day, at different times of the year, to show how temperature and light can change the same object beyond recognition.
“I tried to do the impossible – to paint the light itself,” Monet once admitted.

In the style of Auguste Renoir
Impressionism is a positive painting. And the most positive among the Impressionists was Renoir. He is called one of the most optimistic masters, who did not create a single sad picture.
He was interested in ordinary life with its simple pleasures. Renoir loved to paint people who drink, dance and have fun. He loved beautiful landscapes and flowers, loved children, adored young beautiful women.
“I am convinced that the picture should be pleasant, fun and attractive! There are too many boring things in the world, and you should not replenish their number with your paintings.”

In the style of Edgar Degas
Degas was not a classical impressionist. He loved a clear line, he has a lot of black. But still he is always put on a par with other great impressionists, because he was an impressionist of gesture. A bright and idiosyncratic artist, seeking to curb the movement. He knew sign language and depicted it on canvases with outstanding ease and softness.
Graceful portraits of noble persons, dancers, jockeys and ironers came out from under the skillful hand of the artist. Unexpected angles, asymmetry in the arrangement of objects, characters taken by surprise – these are the main attributes of his paintings.
In the style of Alfred Sisley
Alfred Sisley was a modest and silent man. So were his landscapes. Quiet, filled with color comfort, a little distant, but this makes them even more natural and sincere. Today, he is rightfully considered creator of the most subtle and lyrical landscapes in Impressionism.
The artist did not like external effects. He also almost never portrayed people. The artist especially liked to paint the sky, which often occupied most of the canvas. With him, he began any picture.
“The sky is the most important character and object for me. By no means a background! It gives you the depth you need. Transmits movement. Every time I sit down to write, I start from the sky.”

In the style of Edouard Manet
Manet fundamentally changed the purpose of painting. The picture has become the embodiment of the individuality of the artist, who paints as he pleases, forgetting about patterns and traditions.
The artist chose only a fleeting fragment from the endless stream of being, trying to convey the freshness of the impression, to create in the viewer a special feeling that he is a witness to everything that is happening now, that every moment of life can be filled with poetry and artistic value.
Manet experimented with color, not trying to depict the so-called natural color. If he saw gray-brown water as bright blue, then he depicted it as bright blue.
“I write what is, not what is not!”

On the platform of the Art Most in the style of Manet – Olga Grigorieva-Klimova.
In the style of Camille Pissarro
The main plots and source of inspiration for Pissarro were the earth on which he walked, the air, the density of which changed everything around, the light, the intensity of which influenced the perception of color. The artist used all the technical findings of impressionism – pure colors, dense separate strokes, a series of paintings painted at different times of the day.
However, his work is more realistic than is customary among the Impressionists. The artist rarely used the “randomness” of the composition, preferring a more finished construction of the canvas.
In the paintings of Camille Pissarro there is a deep understanding of nature and the power of the brush, with which the artist handled freely and freely.
“Work simultaneously on the sky, water, branches, earth, keeping everything on an equal footing… Don’t be afraid to paint… Draw lavishly and decisively, because that’s the best way not to lose the first impression.”
