Styles & Periods
Post-Impressionism

The impact that French Impressionism had on the art world was profound, and it set the stage for several of the influential and innovative modern masters that followed. Beginning in the late nineteenth century, several artists began to push the limits of Impressionism. Many elements of Impressionism were still considered relevant, including the use of intense color and brush strokes that reflected the character and mood of the painter. The Post-Impressionists continued to use these techniques, but sought to imbue their works with more compelling subjects, as well as a renewed focus on form and structure. The familiar names Paul Cézanne, Vincent van Gogh, Paul Gauguin and Georges Seurat all belong in this group. In general, these artists left behind the naturalism of Impressionism in favor of the scientific study of color. By introducing these elements, the seeds of modernist movements Fauvism, Cubism and German Expressionism were planted. When the paintings of the Post-Impressionists were first shown, a sensation occurred; today these works continue to be essential in the dialogue of modern art.

This is an excellent watercolor set to start to work with. I've used this mainly for portrait and nude paintings. Sometimes I'd mix it with a white paste to create my own custom gouache. The beauty of the set is that they are in tubes, so mixing and making your own mixes is very, very easy to do.i have been using this set up for almost 5 years now, and I always come back to this set for my creativity.

After reading that this product wouldn't work on cheap magnetic brass hinges, I tried buying new ones in bronze. After a couple of failures with buying the correct size/type of hinge, I decided to try the rub n buff.For those who asked about using this over cheap hinges that are actually brass color over steel or aluminum (do magnet test), rub n buff does work. I just did it. Soak hinges in mineral spirits or thinner. Spray clean hinges with zinseer123, I used white which I had on hand. Let dry. (I sprayed both sides and let dry over night). Once dry, I applied rub n buff with a rag. Because I used white zinseer123 primer I had to used a toothbrush to apply the rub n buff in the crevices that showed still showed white. I used ebony and autumn gold to create bronze. They look amazing.
