Modern-Day Impressionist Paints the Striking Beauty of Canadian Landscapes

Joe Reimer Impressionist Paintings

In the 19th century, Impressionists found constant inspiration in their bucolic surroundings. Artists like Claude Monet and Pierre-Auguste Renoir painted en plein air to achieve their enticing pictures of the sun-dappled outdoors. Even today, modern-day Impressionists carry on the style in new surroundings.

Contemporary artist Joe Reimer captures the idyllic scenery of Western Canada in his series of Impressionist-style landscape paintings. Among his subjects are rural hay bales, forests, lakes, and the Canadian Rockies. To achieve the incandescent quality in his work, Reimer employs a textured effect with his paintbrush. For example, in just one element of his paintings, the artist applies dozens of small, rectangular strokes in various hues. Reimer’s meticulous technique pays off in spades, as each landscape bursts with dynamic color.
