impression of fall
Impression of Fall
My iTunes: Rejoice Greatly from Handel's Messiah, performed by Kathleen Battle
One of my favorite periods in western art is the 19th century, which spans a variety of artistic movements. Two of my favorites are romanticism and impressionism. In playing around in Photoshop, I realized that I could turn a photograph into an impressionist-style painting using filters. This shot reminds me of paintings by Monet because he liked to paint in a similar style. I'd go off into a bunch of art historical jargon and explain the history of the impressionist movement, it's goals, and some of it's famous painters, but I think that for now, posting this picture and expressing my love of the impressionist movement will suffice.
