Impasto paintings with knife or sand can be spread in layers, one over another, to produce interesting effects of light and color. Impasto painters build their textured art with thick strokes of color. From these impasto art, we can find that, instead of make a very detailed and realistic oil painting, the artists such as van Gogh
or Paul Klee
used palette knife with heavy paints
, or gesso, to create abstracted scenes of everyday life with textures. The technique made these textured paintings seem like an impression of light and color rather than a fully realistic, detailed picture. -- The Copyright of Scripts is Reserved by Toperfect.
