Impasto is a painting technique where paint is applied thickly to canvas, creating a textured surface that adds a three-dimensional quality. This technique allows for a more expressive and tactile representation, giving the artwork a dynamic and physically engaging presence. Impasto involves applying paint in thick layers, often straight from the tube, and can be achieved using various tools, including brushes, knives, and fingers. This technique emphasizes light and shadow, as the thick paint can catch light in different ways, enhancing the painting's overall depth and vibrancy.
