This painting shows how close and codependent humans and nature were. How well humans worked together with one another and their world. How peaceful those that are close to nature are, which is why it (nature) must be celebrated and appreciated.
In the poem “To Paint a Water Lily” by Ted Hughes, the speaker conveys his attitude toward nature as perplexing, complex, and deceiving. He also expresses his opinion of the artist and the difficulties brought on by him trying to paint and recreate not only the picture of a water lily and its natural scene, but also capture the intense environment that is both peaceful and full of constant activity. The author achieves this through literary techniques such as: imagery and juxtaposition.
Space and colors dominates this piece of art. The artist used a three dimensional space where the road angle created a 3-D look. The road is going narrow as it goes towards the back part and the artist make it look like more realistic by making the trees smaller as well. White and blue color dominates the drawing. Blue symbolizes so many things
As for my Visual Analysis Task, I have chosen to write about this image on the left. This piece was recently created by Shepard Fairey a street artist. This was made in response to the election of Donald Trump- known as the President of the United States. ‘We the People’ features portraits of Native Americans, African Americas, Muslims, and Latinas portrays in Fairey’s trademark style with slogans such as “Women are Perfect” and “Defend Dignity”.
The spot people are staying at is illuminated. One of the styles of the Hudson River School painters’ is a greater emphasis on the quality of the light in specific scenes. Church went further by extending the richness of his visions into greater, but a very realistic view. The sunlight looks very bright, but natural and people seem to be moving along with the light. Such a technique can be interpreted as a symbolism in this painting. The sunshine covers the strangers and illuminates their way into forest. This is showing the willingness of the nature to let people explore its treasures and the patronage over them. By putting the explorers on the foreground of the picture, on the very bottom of it, the author expresses the idea of the beginning of their adventurous trip to taming the
A becoming size of 8.25 in. X 9.5 inches, this oil on panel landscape was painted by the American Impressionist painter John Twatchman. The eye is drawn to the bend in the road with a deep gully below the straight pathway. The mood is serene and carefree, whimsical, thought-provoking, light, and fresh. It is painted with the impressionist technique of broken brushwork and blending of colors directly on canvas, also known as the juxtaposition of complimentary colors to increase the intensity of each hue (Gardener and Kleiner 689). These “impressions” artists created in their work were reactions between unverifiable depictions of the outside world and their individual responses to nature. In View from the Holley House, Twatchman captures a fleeting moment in the atmosphere and climate around him ("John Henry Twachtman”). Each impressionist understood the the importance of scrutinizing how
The flowers face many angles and are all different, most have contrasting shades of green leaves surrounding the petals and varying stem widths and lengths. This creates interest throughout the painting. To complement the bright yellow flower petals, Van Gogh has detailed a baby blue background with small, vertical and horizontal brush strokes. This contrasts well with the yellow flowers and helps to separate them from the yellow foreground. Also, to break all the yellow sections, he has cleverly used a lighted yellow tint on the bottom half of the vase, rather than shades, which he has used to outline the petals of the flowers. In doing this and by also adding light to the front petals and vase, Van Gogh has added a third dimension to his painting. Like Olley, Van Gogh has painted this artwork in warm colours to create a joyful and uplifting artwork to look at.
The distinctively visual is a prominent characteristic in which the composer shapes a unique visual perspective for the responder to interpret. Using a variety of techniques and languages, the composer is distinctively able to create vibrant and lively visualisations within their work. The poetry of Douglas Stewart, in particular ‘Lady feeding the cats’ and ‘Nesting time’ and the image of ‘’Firefighters at twin towers attack’’ photographed by Todd Maisel are particularly effective. Douglas’ poems uniquely portray ordinary people and outsiders at touching and meaningful moments, experiences and connection with nature that creates an image to the reader the relationship of man and nature and how nature can challenge
The artist paints a work of art “Chiapas Paz Mexico” which is influenced by the way of life of the people living in a river valley in Mexico. For the composition, he paints the mural by dividing two main parts by using flat form style to tell the story. He doesn’t show perspective or overlap objects on the mural. However, the right side of the mural, he paints an unrealistic shape and forms little village with buildings, trees, hills and people into the background of the mural, making them appear far away. At the top of mural, there is an army standing above the mountains of the village. The other interesting part is the old woman at the left side of the mural. She has the biggest portrait on black the background and is separated from a part of the village by the 3 soldiers. However, there is a rainbow ribbon connecting two parts together and the woman is a starting point of the rainbow. The rainbow ribbon shows the movement from the old woman to the river at the bottom right and continues moves
For the photograph that I took, I decided to follow Weston’s theme and photograph an organic object with interesting features. I needed to find something with a vivid texture so that the photograph could allow the viewer to almost feel what I could. I searched throughout my room until finally, I found what I was looking for. It was a shell from the Pacific Ocean that I had brought back with me from Mexico. The shell had off-whites blended into browns and reds. It also had ridges running from the origin of the shell, to the outside. I found the situation to be somewhat ironic considering that Weston had lived in Mexico taking photographs, and also took pictures of shells.
In this C-print portrait photograph of a Saint Joseph ballet dancer from Orange County, California, the subject matter is the person, Stephany. She is pictured wearing a very intense red hue Guess sweater, an almost blank expression on her bare, natural face, and she is standing, posed with a slight lean inward to the left but her gaze is straight ahead. Her facial expression is soft, and there is a complete lack of subject matter in the background. The contrasting value difference in the Guess sweater she is pictured wearing and the whitish-gray empty background keeps your eyes focused on the subject.
What do I notice from the paintings is a figure sitting all alone amidst a rainy storm as if he or she awaits change at a turning point in their life. The starkness of the painting shows the figures emotions and feelings are strong and yet there is always sunshine after the rain.
This is an anti-smoking advertisement geared towards parents of young children. The advertisement is overall plain and simple; it gets straight to the point when you look at it and utilizes a dark theme. This anti-smoking advertisement is trying to evoke a sense of “parental guilt” into parents who smoke. The way the advertisement is able to do this is through the use of an optical illusion, use of text and the use of negative space.
The flowers are pivotal to the painting as they serve many purposes. One of their
