Alfred Sisley

Alfred Sisley

(1839 - 1899)
Born: Paris, France
Style: Impressionism
Famous Works:
  • Rue de La Machine (1873)
  • The Seine at Bougival (1873)
  • Snow at Louveciennes (1878)
Impressionist Alfred Sisley enjoyed painting landscapes in diverse lighting, and was more committed to landscapes that any other impressionist painter. He trained with young artists Claude Monet, Pierre-Auguste Renoir, and Frédérick Bazille in the studio of Charles Gleyre in Paris. Along with his colleagues, Sisley left the confines of the indoor studio, and went outside to paint. Plein air painting was vital to the Sisley, allowing him to observe, first hand, the effects of light on his subject. A trademark of Sisley's landscapes was to incorporate streets and roads that invited the viewer into the painting, inspired, perhaps, by the work of Camille Corot. Also of particular interest to Sisley were the differences in varied atmospheric conditions. By intense observation of scenes, both urban and rural, affected by weather, season, and time of day, Sisley was able to produce works that documented his experience with light. Sisley's canvases are built up by expressive brushstrokes of color, relating the spontaneous reaction of the artist. Luminosity of color, and truthfulness in translation of vision drove Sisley's work. This approach was formed into a distinct style with the collective help of Claude Monet. Together, these two men transformed the tradition of painting, starting a method of recording experience which was to influence artists for generations.

I really like these pencils. I accidentally found a technique that really exemplified the "magic" in them. Rolling the pencil to preserve the point and coloring in a circular motion really brings out the random beauty of the colors in coloring a small petaled flower like a zinnia. I have colored an entire picture with one pencil and gotten raves about it. The biggest drawback I am experiencing is the lack of tutorials to help people understand how to use them. I have seen critiques where the artist did not have a clue how to use them. I have also seen a Russian tutorial that shows a lot of blending techniques that really show some extraordinary effects. I am currently exploring their use for backgrounds. I like the pencils and find them a challenge to explore the "magic."

For many years I used the Elegant Writer pen for calligraphy. But the last few years I have been using it for creating art work. Check out my blog on www.myelegantwriter.com Or just google elegant writer to see how many people are using the pen in various ways. It's fun and an inexpensive way to make art.
