Even though paintings are flat, some parts look far away, while other parts seem to be very close. • How does the painter do that? • Notice what is placed at the top of the page. Is it near or far away objects? • Look at the buildings on the left. What size are the ones that seem far away? • Look for examples of one object hiding or overlapping part of another object. Which object appears farther away?
Now, focus on light, shadow and color in the painting. Can you predict from the shadows where the sun may be? Can you predict the time of day? Why do you think that? What about the season? Does it look like winter, spring, summer or autumn? What evidence is there in the painting?
WABOLL its a nice summer day And check out the grey pebbly beach with the seagull on it which is grey, and feathered, and has a funny beak, which is curvy, and orang.
WAGOLL It is Spring, moonless night in the small town, starless and bible-black, the cobblestreets silent and the hunched, courters'-and- rabbits' wood limping invisible down to the sloeblack, slow, black, crowblack, fishingboat-bobbing sea. The houses are blind as moles (though moles see fine to-night in the snouting, velvet dingles) or blind as Captain Cat there in the muffled middle by the pump and the town clock, the shops in mourning, the Welfare Hall in widows' weeds. And all the people of the lulled and dumbfound town are sleeping now. (Under Milk Wood)
