Impasto

Impasto is a painting technique where the artist would layer paint or pigment in thick doses to achieve a “painterly” aesthetic. The brushstrokes gain depth and begin to protrude outward to give a three-dimensional appearance. The impasto technique has been prevalent since the Italian Renaissance era where it was used to amplify details in their paintings to represent folds on garments or wrinkles on skin.
