Top 10: The most beautiful impressionist paintings on Online Gallery28 October - 2020

The 10 most beautiful impressionist paintings on Online Gallery!
1. Ouse – York – Pol
"Ouse - York - Pol" portrays Jacco van den Hoek's son in York, sitting on a bench by the river Ouse. Van den Hoek painted this work to reflect the characteristic English autumn vibes: an old town, clear skies and a low sun. “A worthy goodbye of yet another year passing by”, Van den Hoek says.
2. Op het Duin
With impressionistic, loose touches and subtle colors, Ellen Davidzon focuses on the beauty in life. Looking at her beach scenes you can almost smell the sea. Davidzon's paintings evoke a sense of happiness; barefoot through the sand with the wind in your hair, you can imagine yourself in complete freedom on the coast.
3. Big Silent Beach
Playing with light and color is also central to Peter Smit's beach scenes. Without prior sketches, Smit paints wet in wet with a loose touch and soft color palette. This results in paintings with an almost lost atmosphere, which can evoke a feeling of nostalgia. Smit prefers to paint plein air, so he can for example "peek" at swimmers on the beach and "catch" them in their most characteristic posture.
With her work ‘Paris’, Zenta Sakalauskiene takes us on an autumn day to the characteristic architecture of the busy city. Sakalauskiene started painting a few years ago, which has now become an important part of her life. For her, painting means escaping the commercial world and enjoying what is really valuable.
5. City Hall Utrecht
Artist Margo de Jong is fascinated by the occasional tranquility of city life and the rhythms in nature, caused by the playful presence or absence of sunlight. For example, 'City Hall Utrecht' shows a reflected cityscape with the playful orange color of a beautiful sunset in the water.
6. Seascape with Sailing Boats
Cornell van Loon has always wanted to move forward with his painting and to apply new techniques, but impressionism remains his favorite style. Van Loon has made a series of excellent copies of Van Gogh, but also in his own work such as "Seascape with sailing boats" we see the impressionist as a source of inspiration.
Plein air artist Sonja Brussen goes out every day to capture the moment; the speed of light, the change of the clouds, in sun, cold, wind and rain. All these aspects contribute to the creation and atmosphere of her work. Looking at her art, the experience of nature is so intense that you find yourself in the middle of that landscape.
8. To the North – Red Earth
The self-taught Afekwo is a realistic painter inspired by impressionism. “I get inspiration from my immediate environment, always looking for art in every aspect of life. I strive to capture those fleeting moments and keep beauty in its essence”, says Afekwo. ‘To the North - Red Earth’ is part of her northern travel series. The painting depicts a serene landscape on the outskirts of Canada, Charlottetown.
9. Lilac Composition
The Armenian artist Haykuhi Khachatryan paints with an impressionist style and uses mostly light colors. Khachatryan: “You could say that I am in my paintings in the form of colors. The colors indicate that I have a bright, optimistic personality. In that sense, the paintings reflect my inner world.” With the positive energy coming from her paintings, Khachatryan wants to plant love and convey respect for nature.
10. Water Lilies
Living by a lake, Harriet Zabusky-Zand got inspired to create the above painting "Water lilies". “Here I can experience and see the changing moods of nature and the rhythm of the seasons. I like to watch the changing patterns, reflections and the way light moves across the surface. Being near water makes me feel fully present and alive. I try to capture a fleeting moment that is also eternal ”, says Zabusky-Zand.
