Camille Pissarro (1830 – 1903) loved to paint rural scenes from nature.
He loved to express the beauty and truth of nature as it exists in its purest form without adulteration.
Preferring to finish paintings outdoors “en plein air” in a single sitting, it gave his work a more realistic feel.
This is how he explained his technique of painting to a student:
Work at the same time upon sky, water, branches, ground, keeping everything going on an equal basis and unceasingly rework until you have got it. Paint generously and unhesitatingly, for it is best not to lose the first impression.
Blossoming trees, light reflections in water, flowering gardens, and village life—Pissarro captured the mood of changing seasons and times of day.
