The artist used different colors of pastel creating an abstract work of art. The colors used were pink, yellow, white, blue, and a few other colors. I was pleased to look at this painting because it was bright and beautiful. The design elements of the painting are different compared to most paintings because it is an abstract expressionism. Since there is not distinct lines in the painting, I believe this painting can be described as having chaotic
Had the piece been painted with sharper shapes, I would not have been as drawn to it, as I feel that dark colors with sharper shapes feels more constricting than interesting. Though of course their have been exceptions in the past, I much prefer the softness of shape in A Portrait of a Sun God. The teardrop shapes in the painting occur with less frequency than the circles, and are mainly used as a sort of framing. In the main focus of the paining the teardrop shapes are painted around the on to the largest circle of the piece as a way of representing the sun 's rays. They are also found at the bottom of the painting in a row amongst rows of circles.
I feel he is also trying to convey a mood by using this form of line because it adds a certain softness to the atmosphere surrounding it. I can identify mostly organic shapes in the work and don’t seem to find any geometric shapes. The drops of paint in the bottom left corner and at the top have no visible shape to them, neither do any of the stains. I believe the artist was more about the flat shapes specifically on the canvas, because the canvas itself appeals to the three-dimensional mass. I see a strong figure-ground relationship between the paint splatters and the color stained background.
There is also repetition with colors. The consistent use of black, gold, red, and the same shade of blue for numerous details helps balance the design. SCALE Relative to the viewer, the painting is intimate. Neither the figures, nor the panel canvas is life-size or large enough to be considered monumental. The entire painting is smaller than the viewer, so it is considered intimate.
On the other hand, The Raising of Lazarus uses bolder, darker colors; Wtewael utilized these colors because they are more appropriate for the austere scene of people that he is depicting. Light colors would have clashed with the darkness of the distressed facial expressions and body gestures of the people in the painting. Unlike Annunciation, the colors in The Raising of Lazarus stand out only in the foreground of the painting in order to draw the viewer’s focus to the subject instead of the background. The use of light is an integral component of both of these paintings. In Annunciation, the light source, which is coming from the heavens, is be... ... middle of paper ... ...elationship between the people in the composition and their feelings in each other’s company.
Both artists used at least some geometric figures in their paintings, unique colors and unique patterns. Kandinsky used brighter colors and a greater variety of them. Although Diebenkorn?s colors were unique, they were kind of dull and there wasn?t as much of a variety. Also, Dibenkorn?s art was fairly simple compared to Kandinsky. Kandinsky filled the paper with many different shapes, scattered everywhere but Diebenkorn just stuck to rectangular and triangular figures mostly and rarely used circular figures.
There are a few dark points too - there is a very dark green shrub and at the left background the sky is a dark grey/blue. I like this because it adds form to the painting and i think it makes it look more realistic. I think the shapes that have been used are regular eg. the sky is a rectangle , the trees are a rounded rectangle shape and circle shaped. In my opinion most of the shapes are formed and look 3D.
The content of the painting is to make a unique visual by making the painting blurry, so that the viewer can be a different vibe. James Abbott McNeill Whistler’s painting contributes to its aesthetic impact by the monochromatic color scheme. At first when I saw the painting by James Abbott, I felt normal because it looked ordinary. As I looked further, I saw all the details, especially from the color schemes, shapes, and boldness used. James Abbott McNeill Whistler’s painting looked very relaxing and mellow to me.
Pointillism was a major reason in why Seurats painting looks so lifelike. During the painting of La Grande Jatte, Seurat simplified his brushwork to such an extent that his painting seems to be composed of nothing but tiny, more or less circular dots. Seurat’s experiments with color led him to paint in small dots of color which are arranged in such combinations that they seem to vibrate. Individual colors tend to interact with those around them and fuse in the eye of the viewer. This approach is not unlike the dots or pixels in a computer image.
Water based house paint and artist’s acrylic paint are similar, and acrylic paint can be mixed with the interior paint to create custom colors. If many grimy fingers will lovingly fondle the mural, it may be wise to paint the finished wall with clear acrylic varnish for protection. This is far less intrusive than velvet ropes to separate the public from the artist’s latest masterpiece, and allows for occasional cleaning. Silhouettes Or Stylized Shapes Chalk is a great drawing medium for walls. Not only is it readily accessible, it is inexpensive, erases easily and comes in many colors.
