I have always been interested in Impressionism and the Impressionists, not only the wonderful paintings they produced, but the theory behind the style. The style opened up a whole new way of painting and loosened up the previous rigid conservative and conventional way of painting. My own little effort is of two figures going for a swim. I just placed colours side by side with the hope of creating a harmony or vibrancy with a little blending here and there. Oil on linen on 6mm mdf 7x5 ins.
