A Disaster at Sea uses the color in almost the same way the landscape with water. It uses yellow for the reflection of the water but it also defines the waves in the sea.
As you see the yellow in this one is very subtle and small but it grabes the effect wanted for this. Here you see a explotion or a sunset in the horizon. It gives a strong centered effect that your eyes see as light and also center on the painting.
This is a more practical use of yellow. Not like the others, this one uses the light from the yellow to illuminate all the characters painted and also uses it as a center point .
The very deep dark yellow in this painting is used to light the painting itself. With it, it gives you a silhouette of the tree, water and waterfall in the background. So with yellow it gives you a perspective on how the painting looks without most colors.
