Impressionism is the way in which an artist views the real subject. It is a form of painting which has to do with how an artist sees the intended subject. In this way one looks at the subject through the very eyes of the artist. This is an incredibly beautiful way of painting since it puts a person in the mindset of the artist as he was painting it. This is a difficult thing to pull off, but if the artist can do it, and then it is a powerful magic when it is done.
