An impressionist views the world in a series of colors and lights that suggest a certain form. For example, imagine an actual sunset such as the one shown below.
An impressionists's mision is not to duplicate reality but convey an impression of a scene.
The next image represents my attempt to reproduce the impressionist style using an archaic paint program - Paint Shop Pro version 6.
