During this Pandemic I was inspired to do a painting showing the masks that are now required to be worn. In the background you can see metro-cards to represent New York. I used acrylic paint and used browns yellows black and white paint. This will be available on my Etsy. I also have a video documenting the process.
Impressionism is a form of art that is represented by think brushstrokes usually en plein air and also shows movement. Abstract art is shapes usually different from reality.
They are very different forms of art. I would say Im more of an impressionist.

These are two painting I did in oil, the first is a portrait and the second is a still life. You can notice the lights and movement in the brush strokes.
