    Impasto oil painting technique

    “Impasto is an art term used to describe thickly textured paint that is almost three-dimensional in appearance.
    Using an impasto technique often leaves visible brush strokes in the finished painting. You could almost say impasto is a type of sculpture—but for painters. And on a canvas.
    Mostly it involves loading up your brush or painter’s knife with more paint than you’d normally need. Then, instead of “dying” or “scrubbing” the canvas with color, just let the paint squish onto the canvas and sit there.
    You don’t want to fiddle with any one spot too much, otherwise you’ll lose that three-dimensional quality by overworking the paint.
    Impasto’s a simple way to give an average painting a big boost, so why not challenge yourself to try out impasto in your next painting? If you’ve never really done it before, break out of your comfort zone and pile on the paint!”

    I put the technique in the form of self explanatory images. If there is any doubt we can clear up with time.

    Thank you for this tutorial, I will try to see what I can do myself.
    For instant I tryed to work with the settings of your thread:
    Thick & flattened paint

    Knife, frost set, wet, pressure 100%, color drag 100% (falloff, drip size, drip spike and drip spread 0%)

    The result for me wasn't as flat as yours in the image,
    it was much more frosty, it can be interesting also but how can I obtained the smooth effect ?

    To show you what I meant I just did an example and finally obtained the effect when remaining longer on the stroke,
    I didn't get it first because I like to work fast and didn't think to the factor time, well here are the image and I imagine there are nothing else to do for the smooth effect than not to be in the hurry,
    am I wright ?
