Remington explored different color palettes in his many nocturne paintings. The blue of The End of the Day is effective in showing the cold of this snowy night. He has successfully used it as the color of snow in the darkness, falling through the air and covering every surface, even the tired backs of the horses and of the man who unhitches them. The warm light of the kitchen is an effective contrast, beckoning the logger inside.
