In traditional oil paintings, artists usually use dark shade or perspective to create space in canvas. Generally speaking, there are almost no dark shade in Matisse’s artworks. His artworks are almost light value and high in intensity. He boldly used high saturation color in shade. Also, he even didn’t obey the original color during creation.
The painting is made from chalk pastels and chalk and charcoal, with the use of smudging and blending. The painting does give a general impression and it is clear as to what it is. The whole painting doe seem smooth and is not textured in anyway. It is hard to see where some lines finish as they do blur into each other at times, making it look abit rough rather that clear edged. The shapes used are of a average size but various sizes, but they are quite simple than organic.
I see a strong figure-ground relationship between the paint splatters and the color stained background. I think the artist did this for a certain effect on the painting. The color used in this work is the most effective element. The artist uses a mix of primary and secondary colors, but no vis... ... middle of paper ... ...he paint splatters, however, seem to intentionally unbalance the rest of the canvas with its concentration at the top. This allows the eye not to focus on just one spot.
When you first look at the painting they seem to blend into her face, but as you go deeper you see them. Repetition The amount of repetition he uses in this piece is remarkable. Picasso uses the same color scheme throughout this painting. I feel like that was very smart on his part. By having the same yellow in the background and on the hands, and the same red on the sleeves of the shirt and in the background as well, unite the painting.
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.
Impressionists, both in art and poetry, portrayed great images of their subjects by using their styles or techniques. They often captured scenes with vivid color, with great light effects, and with motion (Sporre 525). The impressionist painters tried to view their subjects not as what they really were, but as different areas of color, shapes and light. They commonly used quick, free brush strokes of non-detailed spots of color. This method created a lively appearance (Sporre 527).
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. Kandinsky mostly used a bright variety of colors in his works. His art was based mainly on different kinds of shapes but usually contained lines. In some of his paintings, the texture is smooth like in ?Blue Painting?, but in others it is a bit rough like in ?Color Studies.? Kandinsky?s paintings made up only of shapes have their objects cluttered together with only a few objects by themselves.
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.
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.
There is bound to be differences. Both of these paintings unique have many differences like the colors for example. Picasso chose brighter colors that makes it pop. Unlike how Velaquez painting has very dull colors. The amount of people in the painting is also another difference.
