For everyone wishing to participate in Dress Up 2011, here are the deets:
- Dresses are "due" before the last two days of the challenge month.
- I will be using the Mr. Linky tool. When you are ready to show off your design, leave your name and people will be magically transported to your blog for viewing.
- If you want to participate, but don't have a blog, email me and let me know. We can still make your dresses available to show.
- Each dress will be "themed" around an artist or artistic movement. I will announce the artist or movement for the next month sometime in the last two weeks of the previous month.
- Dresses can be made from any material(s) and can be any size you prefer. There are NO rules here, but for those interested in a "template" for a dress, there are a few examples at the end of this post.
- That's it. I really want to stress that there are no rules...anything goes!
Impressionism, French Impressionnisme, developed mostly in France during the late 19th and early 20th centuries. Impressionist painting comprises the work produced between about 1867 and 1886 by a group of artists who shared a set of related approaches and techniques. The impressionist style of painting is characterized mostly on the general impression produced by a scene or object and the use of unmixed primary colors and small strokes to simulate actual reflected light.
The principal Impressionist painters were Monet, Renoir, Pissarro, Sisley, Morisot, Guillamin, and Bazille. Degas and Cezanne also painted in an Impressionist style for a time in the early 1870s. Edouard Manet adopted the Impressionist approach about 1873.
