For instance, The Sower uses expressive line throughout the entire drawing. In the field, it can be noticed that the colors are overlapped. Van Gogh is known for using expressive line in his work, which can also be seen in his other painting named Starry Night. Veteran in a New Field doesn’t use expressive line. The lines in this painting are more controlled.
His work was large in scale, flamboyant in color, and fluidity. He is most closely linked with what is known as action painting. No drop of paint is an accident and loose, rapid sweeping brushstrokes make this style reminiscent of the Surrealists. Pollock became influenced by Picasso, Miro alongside Rothko and the surrealists but soon developed his own unique style which he would later become famous for. Mark Rothko’s technique of painting departs from Pollock’s actions.
The use of shading of the painting, along with sa was quite interesting because the half with the settlers was vibrant and colourful, and as it moved towards the right, the painting becomes darker, with less intensity. It’s most likely supposed to display good and evil, the light, happiness, and the dark, cold, depression. The native Americans are displayed as vile and dark, something that needs to be moved. We already knew that during the 1800s, the Native Americans were being moved to reservations. This painting shows them being moved farther and farther west, away from the settlements, in what was called the “Trail of Tears”.

The landscape painting is depicted vertically, showing a deep mass and volume of the painting and visually showing a dream-like fade that is highly influential to other artworks during the song era in the "golden age of Chinese landscape painting".6 The painting was highly influenced by the movement of the imperial court and reflects highly on the details of its landscape form, showing it 's foregrounds and depth. The way Li Cheng envisioned the idea of total restlessness is by creating a wash of mineral colored pigments to show a symbolic atmosphere of a dream. The elements of the painting contain tampered brushed lines that appear to be modulated or iron-wire painted lines.7 The painting consists of a very washed out texture, forming an illusion of depth through perspective, and managing a dramatic backdrop that displays a rich fade of what appears to
The Great Wave Poetry is “the art of rhythmical composition, written or spoken, for exciting pleasure by beautiful, imaginative, or elevated thoughts” (Dictionary.com). Painting is “the works of art painted in a particular manner, place, or period” (Dictionary.com). Even though poetry and painting are two different forms of art, when viewed together they can help the viewer visualize much more in their mind. The painting and the poetry interpretation of the painting titled “The Great wave”, when analyzed separately and then together, help the viewer to visualize the turmoil and strife that the painter is going through in his life.
The poem, “ The Tyger” by William Blake has many different kinds of tone in the poem such as disappointment, beauty, and the one i chose which was astonishment. I chose astonishment because the speaker was blown away by the beauty of the tygers fur. The author uses diction to describe the tygers fur which is also the tone, he used words such as “burning bright”. The tone of the poem is developed by syntax because the author uses certain ways to put words together. An example of syntax in the poem is, “ Burnt the fire if thine eyes” this is an example because there are other ways of writing.
Soto has achieved great effects to the scene where he describes himself peeling an orange but feels like he was making a fire because the color of the fruit was so bright. The effect was created

Upon gazing at the works of Rembrandt van Rijn, I was immediately able to distinguish the unique aspects of the Baroque style. One of his masterpieces titled “The Return of the Prodigal Son,” is believed to have been completed shortly prior to his death. When setting eyes on this oil on canvas, we immediately see the heavy use of chiaroscuro, with the dark shadows in the background of the painting… reminiscent of the darkness of looming corridors, and in the foreground we see a light which apparently seems to be from a candle/torch of sorts or possibly from a window which reflect upon the figures in the painting. The dramatic quality of the Baroque style can also be seen in the painting as represented by the figures worrisome expressions
The Starry Night is an oil painting by Vincent van Gogh, painted in June 1889, in asylum room at Saint-Rémy-de-Provence. Like many other artist, Van Gogh’s artistic inclinations was based on an extremely popular subject in late-nineteenth, which is Landscapes. Although Van Gogh enjoy seeing farmers working on the countryside, his creations was rather on darker color side. But after he encountered works from the Impressionist and Neo-Impressionist in Paris, since then he had been incorporated their brighter color and style in his work, created his personal unique style, Post-Impressionism and carried over through the end of his life. On the other hand, Ginny Marsh’s Bowl was created in 2010.

Synchromy in Purple Minor in Blanton by Stanton Macdonald-Wright is an abstract painting with an intention of creating a new language of art to express the musical rhythms and depicting space and color through the uses of blocks of color rather than lines and modeling like that of the Renaissance and Baroque art. Stanton Macdonald-Wright applied thin layers of dry paint in wide strokes on the canvas to create flat surfaces of color. In some regions, the painter uses the technique of drybrush to create a scratchy texture that let the under layer of white paint to show through. This created the transition from dark and intense hues to lighter shades of that hue, giving the colors a transparent quality. Although chiaroscuro modeling is not used,
The shadows and the detail of the mattress springs help the painting keep my eyes flowing over the entire piece of art. The repetition I notice is the springs being similarly shaped and the lines of the corrugated steel on the side of the building. The emphasis for me flows between the mattress springs and the rusty siding along with the two places of shadow keep my eyes moving. Springtime has lots of elaboration and that is able to be noticed by the fact that I originally thought the piece was a photograph. Harmony of this piece is good because there is nothing to specific in the exact middle and there seems to be the two-thirds full, one-third empty idea, even though the entire piece has something in it.
Characters in the fresco of The Expulsion from Paradise attains a style that is human in conveying intense and tragic feelings against Masolino’s courtly and elegant nude figures.
