The only thing I think this painting needs is some sort of critter or critters maybe a swan or two other than that it's very well done

Impressionistic paintings from the period tend to use looser brushwork that relies on visual blending that takes place as the viewer moves farther away from the painting. In your painting I think the elements are too clearly defined to be impressionistic. There is nothing wrong with that, and by all means the picture should first be yours, rather than a copy of another style.

Thank you for your input Yes I think my style is falling between the Impressionistic and realism with a touch of fantasy; I"m not aware of any said name for this type of style. There are many of my other works posted here on WC threw out the many channels if you care to see other's. I also make wooden pieces posted here on WC here http://www.wetcanvas.com/forums/forumdisplay.php?f=657
This site is very hard to find and think they need to put it on the main page with the other channels.

One thing that I do like about impressionism is the fact that the brushstrokes become flowers, they become people and vice-versa. It is the obvious reminder that it is, after all, only paint, yet stimulates us enough in the illusion to hold both realities in the same eye.
There must also be a great sense of freedom, almost that of lovers running naked through a garden, the flight of a butterfly in painting this way, as well as sensual.

You are right saying specific entries can be hard to find here. This may be the original inspiration for the phrase "scavenger hunt"!!!

Art is all an illusion you have to trick the viewers eye to see what you see or what you want them to see, thanks for commenting and giving me your views on this piece.

Have been reading up a little on such matters of late ..Cezanne interestingly enough in some of his works avoided pure hues (which ordinarily can be used for the eye as a place to rest etc) so without that rest there was an anchorless violets greens etc in a constant flux ..but there was a supreme balance of the picture overall as a whole.Also the impressionists paintings seem to have mixed colors in them but they do not they are a juxstaposition of separate touches.This way they avoided decrease in saturation that would result from fusion of pigment.They also kept to the middle values not to bright or dark where color would be at it's fullest.Also due to their not being large clumps of opposing colors and instead small local color all over the whole it added up to it's completeness everywhere so it would be an overall greyish color (and I always think of Guerney "better grey than garish") however the grey that one would see in this instance would not be of mud due to mixed color but instead it would be vibrant with life but serene .
