FOTO-IMP

foto-imp.deviantart.com

Has been formed as a focal point for both artists and photographers to unite their skills with the aim of producing good quality Classic Impressionism Style Artwork by image manipulation of photo’s using various software such as Photoshop, Gimp Ultrafractal etc.

Our main difference with other photo manipulation groups .. Is that we have been formed to stay within the remit of Impressionism and Post - Impressionistic styles of artwork.

So what is Classic Impressionist Style?

One def is: - Impressionist painting characteristics include 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), and ordinary subject matter, inclusion of movement as a crucial element of human perception and experience, and unusual visual angles.

However the best way is to look at the various styles of the masters of this genre:-

Courbet. Degas, Manet , Pissaro, Renoir, Monet, Millet, Cezanne, Sisley, Caillebotte, Morisot, Signac, Seurat, Van Gogh, Gaugin, Toulolouse - Lautrec, Matisse. ... (Check them out on the internet or through books ! .. (I’m old enough to still remember books )

They were a very varied group of artists in nature, temperament technique and there whole philosophical approach to life and art.

So if you find yourself interested in our general concept ... then I'm certain that there will be a place for your artwork somewhere in our galleries.


So with certain latitude made for the fact that we are attempting the difficult task of reproducing impressionistic style from photographs:

By the joining of like minds into a group... I am sure we shall be encouraged and challenged by each other to ever greater heights and ultimately succeed in our aim.

So let artwork begin.

MEMBERSHIP IS NOW AUTOMATICALLY APPROVED........ So please join us!!

Please submit all your work to the NEW SUBMISSIONS gallery
We will then move it to what we feel is the most appropriate gallery.

The very best works of the group will be displayed in our featured Gallery.

Would new members also note that there is also an Overflow Submissions category where we may temporarily relocate artwork to enable balance between various artists in the Featured gallery? This is for the benefit of the group as a whole. This also ensures that the quality of the Featured gallery will always remain at the highest level.

Please NOTE that I have temporarily increased submissions for members to 3 per day due to the pure quality of their back work.



Please note that all new members with featured artwork will have at least one work tweeted into social media to help promote their artistic talent. Other featured artwork will from time to time be promoted on my own Google+ Art page (1043+ followers) and also my home deviant Art page to further foster interest in Photo-Impressionism.
