Painterly Style / Fruit or Landscape
The impressionistic painters of the 19th century first began exploring this painterly style. The impressionist style of painting is characterized by emphasizing the general impression of a scene or object. Impressionists are not concerned with meticulous blending of colors. Instead, they use bold brush strokes to juxtapose colors that from a distance the eye blends together.
PAINTING IN A PAINTERLY STYLE
A painterly style of painting is one where the painting process is evident. Brush strokes are clearly visible and the artist is not trying to make the painting look like a polished photograph.
