Textures and Movement In Nature - Ehrin Erickson

This gallery displays artworks of several Impressionism paintings that capture the movement and textures of nature’s beauty. Besides nature, I choose these paintings for this collection based upon of the use of un-mixed colors and patterns created by brush and knife. The use of theses techniques help the paintings capture the illusion needed to give life. 

Forest Lane near Schärfling is an impressionism painting done by Emil Jakob Schindler in 1890. This painting uses patterns and textures to capture a bright autumn day on a backroad. The trees have hatching and cross hatching for the branches while the leaves are a mixture between stippling and hatching. The movement of the scene is all flowing the same way except for the trees.
The Magpie is an impressionism painting done by Claude Monet in 1869. This painting is of a snowy place in the countryside near Etreta with a Magpie perched on the gate. The snow is texturized with different colors overlayed on top of each other. The artist looks like they used the technique of hatching and stippling to create this illusion. The trees are covered with shades of grey, blue and white to make it look like snow. The artist did this using a repetition of a whisking wayward movement from the branches of the trees. Since their is a heavy use of white the art had to use a lot of movement through this painting.
The Wave is an impressionism painting by Gustave Courbet in 1869. This painting has an abandoned sail boat on a shore. The waves are crashing on the coast while the sky is getting dark making it look like its going to storm. Gustave uses a circular movement with his brush in the clouds to make it look like rolling storm clouds. The waves of the ocean have a lot of movement and texture to them. The movement of the waves is all cohesive except for the white caps of the waves to allow them to break apart from the water.
The Wave is a impressionism painting done by Pierre-Auguste Renoir in 1882. This picture is an up close interpretation of a wave on the shore. The artist created movement and texture in the wave by overlaying different colors. These colors include red, blue, orange, yellow, magenta, and white. Pierre uses a curved hatching technique to help create the illusion of movement in the water. The artist uses white in a stippling effect to help create the white caps on the wave.
Violet and gold is an impressionism painting by Frederick McCUBBIN done in 1911. In this painting it shows a group of cattle drinking from a creek in the woods. The light from the sun is shining down when the cattle are drinking. Frederick uses techniques like hatching and cross hatching to help capture the woods. The colors in the painting are all almost blended together, this is to help show the distance. Because of the distance the artist has a lot more texture within the piece. To help bring unity to the picture the artist uses patterns alike in various spots such as the leaves and bushes.
Waterlilies is an impressionism painting done by Claude Monet in 1904. This painting is of water lilies on dark water. The dark water represents that the setting is in an inactive area. All of the lilies are moving in the same pattern. To give an illusion of life Monet didn't mix his colors fully. This is why the pedals have different colors in them. To help create the lilies Monet uses the technique of stippling and hatching.
Winter Sun at Lavacourt is an impressionism painting done by Claude Monet in 1880. This painting shows a scene of a field covered in snow with a sunset. In the distance on the left are some houses. The snow is heavily textured in this painting. Flowing the same direction it has blobs of other colors over laid to give the snow life. Some of the darker colors in the snow could represent foot prints. Monet uses hatching and cross-hatching with his strokes on the bushes. While the trees branches are almost scribbled into each other. This texturing makes them seem like they are alive.
Shadows on the Sea. The Cliffs at Pourville is an impressionism painting done by Claude Monet in 1882. This painting shows cliffs in the distance in front of the ocean while on the coast. The water is composed of an repetitive elongated U shape. The overlapping pattern and lack of bending of colors gives the illusion that the water is moving. To create the cliffs Monet uses parallel lines. By using blue it looks like the water is reflecting off of the cliffs.
In the Woods is an impressionism painting done by Pierre-Auguste Renoir in 1880. This painting is of a path in the woods. Trees are on each side of the path and from the colors of the leaves it looks like it is becoming autumn. In this painting the artist uses a pattern of stippling. To break away the trees in the picture the artists uses a dark green for the trunks of the tree. To help capture movement of the leaves each one of the strokes are pulled in a different direction.
Poppies is an impressionism painting done by Robert William Vonnoh in 1888. This is an up close painting of a field of poppies. The use of movement and pattern in this painting is displayed the most in the grass. The artist uses and upwards motion with his strokes with unblended colors. He overlays each stroke with different shades of green to capture the depth and texture of the grass. Textures of orange, pink and yellow that break away from the repletion of the grass are painted over top of the grass, these are to visually represent the poppies.
