The Canadian School of Painting is immersing oneself in nature, to be inspired and create en plein air. AY Jackson and the Group of Seven were infamous for what the Canadian critics called the Hot Mush Style.The Hot Mush Style is the quick manipulation of thick vibrant pigment to create light and shadow. The style was used as the cornerstone for establishing the Canadian School of Painting.
