Painting the Impressionist Landscape: Lessons in Interpreting Light and Color
Painting the Impressionist Landscape: Lessons in Interpreting Light and Color

Impressionism--its techniques as well as its practitioners, past and present--continues to excite the passions of artists and art enthusiasts alike. And the influence on American art has had a long and distinguished history. Through artistic principles developed by Charles Hawthorne, an influential American impressionist and educator who founded the Cape Cod School of Art, the rich legacy of the impressionist tradition was passed on to several generations of American artists. Now in paperback, Painting Methods of the Impressionists, explores and illustrates Hawthorn's philosophy and theories about color and light, enabling artists at every level to apply his insights to their own work.
