Lounging On The Sofa Impressionist Style #CaturdayArt



As you can see, I love a good stretch out on the sofa. It's an impressive way of showing off my beautiful long arms. 

Are you impressed? 

Mum used one of the Impressionist arty filters from BeFunky for this effect. She can't remember which one though. 

What is Impressionism?

 From Wikipedia:

Impressionism is a 19th-century art movement characterised by relatively small, thin, yet visible brush strokes, open composition, emphasis on accurate depiction of light in its changing qualities (often accentuating the effects of the passage of time), ordinary subject matter, unusual visual angles, and inclusion of movement as a crucial element of human perception and experience. Impressionism originated with a group of Paris-based artists whose independent exhibitions brought them to prominence during the 1870s and 1880s.

The Impressionists faced harsh opposition from the conventional art community in France. The name of the style derives from the title of a Claude Monet work, Impression, soleil levant (Impression, Sunrise), which provoked the critic Louis Leroy to coin the term in a satirical review published in the Parisian newspaper Le Charivari. The development of Impressionism in the visual arts was soon followed by analogous styles in other media that became known as impressionist music and impressionist literature.

Here is the jigsaw version!

Athena, having just visited the Detroit Institute of Arts, the first gallery I always visit is the Impressionists!
You look as beautiful as ever today, and thanks for the puzzle.

I am impressed with your long arms and your beautiful art. Thank you for hosting and for the puzzle. XO

Wow you do have long legs. Yang would be the only one here that has legs anywhere near as long. Yin has rather short legs, Chimera has long legs considering how small she is and Scylla's are about average.
