What is style when it comes to art? It is the particular way an artist puts down a stroke onto canvas or paper with the medium of choice. The other factors are many, like the subject matter and how the artist approaches the composition. Style is a distinctive quality of originality. A style comes about as you create many an artwork just trying to perfect your craft. It is in how the artist expresses their feelings into the artwork. Some styles stand out more than others. Take a Van Gogh work; how can you not recognize his work right away. Look at the emotion he puts into his works. Here is a collection of some of his paintings that I cropped to zoom in on the detail and brush strokes.
