Claude Monet was the founder of French Impressionist painting. His paintings can be viewed as a painted “snapshot” very close to our camera and phone photos today. The shading and the use of pastels can be captivating and yet calming. By looking at the two paintings below, can you almost feel the breeze coming from the trees?

Vincent Van Gogh was a Dutch post Impressionist artist, who was not only remembered for his mental turmoil and severing his earlobe, but was remember post death as one of the greatest most brilliant artists/ painters. He definitely poured his heart and soul into his work. Displaying a wonderful contrast of pastels colors that will leave you visually believing the painting has come to life. Can you imagine yourself sitting accompanying the man in the boat listing to the spring leavers dangle as the breeze hit them or the vivid smell of the blossoms?
