Discover Open Impressionism

"Open Impressionism" is a new style of painting developed by American artist Erin Hanson. The style is characterized by short, impasto brush strokes that are applied without layering, creating a mosaic or stained-glass appearance to the paintings. The paintings are created with a limited pallette of colors, applied without blending or mixing upon the canvas, which adds a dimension of texture to each brush stroke. Inspired by classic impressionism, pointillism, post-impressionism and the colors of the expressionists, Erin Hanson continues the tradition of impressionism into the modern day with her colorful and vivacious landscape paintings.
