Background information
Background Information

  • At first sight, doesn’t seem particularly noteworthy

  • Closer inspection: intricate detail and an unexpected mastery of technique

  • Artistic style chosen deliberately for effect

  • Reminds the viewer of 19th C French Impressionist style



Impressionism

Style emphasises the overall colour, shape and movement of objects without delineating them in detail.

Three main characteristics of this style:

-Sketchy outlines

-Economy of brushstrokes

-Hinting at, rather than

depicting, realistic details

Impressionism


Composition perspective
Composition/Perspective objects without delineating them in detail.

  • Basic structure: diagonal

  • The eye is led from bottom left to top right

  • The painting combines linear (ground level) and aerial (bird’s eye) perspective simultaneously

  • This creates the illusion of depth: objects diminish in scale into the distance & are represented in fainter, hazier tones


Colour
Colour objects without delineating them in detail.

  • Surprisingly limited palette

  • Overall impression: white on purple with blue sea and sky

  • Also: yellow, pink and brown
