    If you haven't seen the two-DVD set, "The Impressionists", you don't know what you're missing!

    I rented it from Netflix and absolutely loved it. It is an enactment of the lives of Monet, Renoir, Manet, Cezanne, Degas, and other Impressionist painters living at that time around Paris. Fascinating and eye-opening!

This acrylic sketch was done on location at Frederic Church’s Olana estate, in a direct style to help illustrate the differences between direct and indirect painting. I used Golden Open acrylics to extend the working time on my palette, and used an unsealed surface to help the paint dry faster on the painting. I looked at the landscape, mixed the colors and values I saw on my palette, and applied those directly to the white surface of the board.

When this one was done (“Done” is a relative term when out sketching/painting on location with a moving light source and short time frame!), I painted a similar scene of the same vista using an indirect painting method. I’ll post that one tomorrow and discuss the differences.
