Art: Impressionist Rhino by Artist Rebecca Salcedo
Ah, Impressionism.  Does it get any better? The soft light, the impasto effects. The gentle caressed beauty created by your brush as you pull it through the creamy edges of wet paint, blending the colors just so in a sensual embrace that ends with the kiss of a bold little highlight....the result? Creating realism merely through the close relationship of the colors. Beautiful. No wonder it was such a romantic period.  (I just made all that up).

As an ode to my Smelly Rhino Studio, I thought a series of Rhinos would be fun!

Let me introduce you to Rhino #1, the first "Impressionist" Rhino in my series of 31 Days of Rhinos, but probably not the last, after what is arguably one of the most popular painting styles the world over! It is evidenced by the amount of art which is still produced today using the techniques which came into favor by the late 19th century movement.

Join me on an adventure into the history of art, my way... a little mission of creating 31 days of Rhinos!  I will share with you the most influential genres of art throughout history as well as some great techniques and media for every artist! There are 16 rhinos thus far, and another 15 to go.  Beginning March 15, I will begin posting here and there the second half of the series on my blog and here on EBSQ!

The best thing about impressionism?  Well, there isn't a truly definitive line to the style, so have at it and use a nice painterly stroke!  I can't wait to see yours! But first, vote for mine. :)
