Radicals in their time, early Impressionists violated the rules of academic painting. They constructed their pictures from freely brushed colors that took precedence over lines and contours. They used a loose, direct application of paint and used optical mixing rather than direct mixing on a palette.
Edgar Payne was well known for capturing the majesty of the Western landscape. He painted multiple pieces of favorite motifs from the Laguna coastline to the Mesas of Arizona. We are going to study some of his works in miniature here. This will let us really explore the power of the compositions.
