In this approach to impressionism and its methods, the author's instruction enables amateur artists to paint like the impressionists. The book is illustrated with well-known works of art, and shows how the masters achieved their effects and how their ideas and styles can be adapted today.

An introduction provides historical background to impressionism, and a section is included on artist's materials available then and now. Demonstrations show how to achieve the desired effects, from the initial sketch to the finished painting.

Sections on the artists provide insight into individual techniques. You will learn how to re-create the style of Monet's landscapes, Cézanne's still lifes, or Degas's figures, and see your own impressionism develop from the first brushstroke to the finished painting.
