John Constable decided to attend the Royall Academy School in London in 1799 instead of working at his family’s farm. Constable was known for “capturing the ephemeral properties of nature- clouds, light, and atmosphere” (Davies 828). His paintings include great emotion that comes from “experiencing the beauty of the Stour Valley” (Davies 828). His painting, The Haywain, on a six foot canvas, depicts “a blue sky pushing out darker clouds, and invisible layer of moisture that makes everything glisten” (Davies 828).

Lines, spacing, color and shapes are the basic elements of art. I believe art is an expression of the body, mind, and soul of an individual. I also believe art shouldn 't have any boundaries, nor should have restrictions. I believe art always has something to say, but never needs to make a statement.
