For example, the man's shirt and the blue water. The other part is a bit depressing because all the colours fade into darker ones and shadows. The bottom right part of the painting is where Icarus fell and where the colours drain. 3. What viewpoint did Brueghel
There is almost no contrast in this painting besides the subjects themselves in the painting. Particularly, the face on the right subject, he has the most detail with color and contrast out of the whole piece. Now the space of this picture is a bit of an illusion, because the way it’s painted it can change with how the viewer’s imagination perceives
The painting has a light and smooth finish to finish to it, and at the same time the bold outlines of the male figures appear like a sketching. Little detail compared to the woman in the center of the canvas. The clouds are dark and made with
Even the woman’s frame and posture seem to follow the lines created by the railings of the viewing box. The railings are also implied lines, the first thing our eyes go to is the woman, and then we follow the railings to the man who has his gaze set on the woman. The man’s gaze gives us implied lines that lead us back to the main focus of the painting, the woman. The artist also uses light and dark to guide our eyes to the important parts of the artwork. Most of the artwork is dark, while the woman and the man looking at her are in the light.
However, the top fraction of the painting is more light because it represent the sun and the other half of this painting has a darkness which can be the shadows of the lights or to illustrate the big rocks. An intuition of my part, is that I think this painting is depiction of harmony in nature. Indeed, the "Cora Kneeling at the Feet of Tamenund" is a painting that reflects the scenery beauty of the Hudson
The lighting in Red Hills with Flowers is dim because dawn was approaching. One might feel like they could not walk or reach into this painting because they would not feel like it had the right space to do so. The lines are curved to shape the mountains and the center of the
This helps to create a close up look at the view outside the window suggesting the intimacy between the artist and the habitat outside. This is because the focus is almost wholly given to the view outside the window. The view, which is embellished by the presence of flowers sitting on the windowsill, and creepers climbing on the railing, is located in the center of the composition. Despite the lack of a line of symmetry and any logic or geometric order, Matisse has been able to draw the attention of the viewer’s eye through the use of bright colours, almost fluorescent, which were used to portray the calm sea with its floating blue boats, and the sky tinted with the colours of the sunset. The calm sea at the horizon is painted with unreal tones of pink, sky blue, and violet whereas the boat, painted with tones of indigo, orange and green, seem to move along with the light breeze.
The Focal Point of the painting would be the three people at the table but mainly the woman and man sitting across from each other. There is no unity or variety that appears in the artwork. The artwork is in proportion. There is no movement in the picture considering the people are sitting down at the table. There is no rhythm or pattern in the artwork that is involved.
There was a focus point which is Saint Francis. Although the painting mainly consist of black and tan colors, the slight bright colors to balance of the black. This help bring out the details, such as the blessing on hands and the kneeling of people. Yet, the details were not too big that it would be too much to handle. This helps get the message across to the audience, like myself.
The painting itself seems to depict the Grand Canal in Venice, however Moran does not really make the river break off to any other canal. Except he does include a bridge in the painting. The bridge is found on the right side of the painting. Slightly tucked behind the three boat figures on the right side.
The painting has asymmetrical because the weight on each side is uneven. Mary is much bigger than baby Jesus. The dominate design in the painting would be Mary’s face. Mary’s face is key focus; it draws your attention to see what is next. But, Mary’s hands also take domination because in early painting Mary is barely holding on to Jesus, he is just floating above her lap, but in this painting you can tell the grip Mary has on Jesus.
In this art called American Gothic done by Grant Wood, the viewer can see how the artist creates a dull, but impressive painting. At first look at this artwork, the the viewer’s attention is directed towards the man wearing the dark coat. The viewer also sees a women which could be seen as the man’s wife, daughter, or friend. As the viewer looks at the background of the painting they can see that these people are probably living on a farm. With this painting having many differents forms, the viewer gets to see a piece of art that seems convincingly real. The viewer can also see different shades of color which give the painting more depth. This painting is impressive, due to the different details added to give it more of a authentic feel.
