Summer 2014 - Geese by Alfred Sisley

Pastel 1897
Alfred Sisley (/ˈsɪsli/; French: [sislɛ]; 30 October 1839 – 29 January 1899) was an Impressionist landscape painter who was born and spent most of his life in France, but retained British citizenship. He was the most consistent of the Impressionists in his dedication to painting landscape en plein air (i.e., outdoors). He deviated into figure painting only rarely and, unlike Renoir and Pissarro, found that Impressionism fulfilled his artistic needs.
Sorry for the lack of postings these past few months!  Let's work on this painting by Alfred Sisley for this summer, we will have until the beginning of September.  Happy Painting!


  1. This looks like fun, Karen! Happy painting!

  2. Summer artworks usually include blue sea, green lake, shipping boat, lurch tress, swimming boys, etc. In summer, we tend to seek coolness, clean out our house, hide from the glaring sun.
