An introduction to textured florals - Impasto art.
Impasto painting is a painting technique that involves applying thick, textured layers of paint to a surface like canvas.
In the case of impasto floral painting, artists use this same technique to create lifelike, 3-dimensional flowers and petals -often with a range of palette knives to help achieve the different shapes/sizes.
One goal of this type of painting is to create a sense of depth and volume in the blooms, making them appear to jump right off the canvas!
The thickness of the paint also creates a contrast between the highlights and shadows of the blooms, adding to the illusion of depth and dimension, making these pieces truly magical and energetic to look at.
