Impressionistic Oil Painting

Today my reddit feed introduced me to an oil painter by the name of Inna Tsukakhina (mildly NSFW paintings). Her work is incredibly inspiring; Impressionistic elements, swipes of a hard bristled brush or palette knife surround beautiful subjects and backdrops to create a depth-of-field that brings the painting to life. Vivid colors and expertly rendered figures really make the paintings stand out like a lucid dream still fresh in the mind. I think I will buy a large canvas and try something similar, myself. I’ve been meaning to buy a few more palette knifes to play around with a different painting style and this is the perfect excuse.
