Cool Colors In Art

My Virtual Art Exhibition features pieces from various artists from various centuries, and various museums. Artwork by Vincent van Gogh, Willem can de Velde, Jordi Aluma, Hai Ja Bang, Ricardo Azkargorta Zelaia, Dae Cho Park, Aka Hoegh, and Ik Mo Kim are all showcased here in my Virtual Exhibit. In every piece of artwork showcased, there are many shades of blue present.

This oil painting by Van Gogh was painted on canvas and uses many different shades of blue. The Dutch Van Gogh painted this in the 1800's as a representation of his view out of a window in an asylum.
In this 17th century painting, van de Velde uses oil on panel to show ships floating close to shore. The focus is toward the bottom of the painting, which allows van de Velde to show a vast, blue sky.
This painting was created in 1988 by Jordi Aluma using oil paint on wood. This oil painting showcases a woman's face, a horse's head, and a woman swimming. The color blue is dominant in this piece.
This painting shows Bang's interpretation of the sunrise on a foggy morning. By having the dominant color as blue, the viewer knows that it is dawn, rather than dusk, which would showcase warm colors.
This 1998 painting by Zelaia uses the color blue as the dominant color. The overall feeling of the painting is of a cold area. The patterns on the painting draws the focus of the viewer.
This engraving by Dae Cho Park is used to represent how children can feel trapped by the troubling world around them. The use of dark and light greens squares makes the viewer feel unsettled.
This Oil painting showcases Hoegh's take on the four seasons of her native country, Greenland. The use of the blue and green are more noticeable than the other colors. These colors symbolize winter.
This 2007 painting by Ik Mo Kim was created by painting on paper. Some viewers will see random paint patterns, however, others see a field of wildflowers. Kim most uses blue most in this painting.
