The term impression signifies the sensory information registered on the retina prior to any recognition of the object. For example, the eye sees tiny black spots before it recognizes them as faraway pedestrians. When you go out to paint, try to forget what objects you have before you, a tree, a house, a field or whatever Monet explained to a neighbor in Giverny, merely think here is a little square of blue, here an oblong of pink, here a streak of yellow, and paint it just as it looks to you, the exact color and shape, until it gives you your own naïve impression of the scene before you.
