Water and Waves

The movement from serenity into unrest using imagery of still waters that gradually escalate into waves and waterfalls.

The water in this image is clear and undisturbed and exudes peace.
The water in this image contains some movement, the sense of calm remains.
I chose this image because it reflects calm and warmth perfectly. It is also a good introduction to the Water Lilies in the next image.
This image, by Monet, is busy in the sense that the water is filled with plant-life. Water Lilies is an image that draws you in and is filled with a peaceful beauty.
This piece exudes utter peace and serenity. The last true source of complete still. A sort of "calm before the storm."
The water in this image is distant and unclear, but the overall blurred effect of the painting gives me the impression of a windy, tumultuous day.
The water is slightly disturbed by the wind and movement is apparent.
The water is agitated, though still slow moving and the forms in the image are strained. However, there is still a sense of calm in the characters' determination.
Although there is not excessive movement in the water, it's clear that the water is pushing up against the shore and houses with the pressure and intensity of high tide creating a sort of tension.
The water is clearly being ruffled by the wind, which aids in the continued buildup of agitation.
Beach imagery lends itself to the idea of a wild, windswept beauty. The watery waves help the build up of the gallery.
Whether or not the artist intended it to be this way, to me this image shows a figure battling the strength of the waves, in a quiet sort of chaos.
In regard to this gallery, the waterfalls, while in a peace-filled setting, carry intensity, strength, and a reckless, contained chaos.
The close perspective of this waterfall shows the intensity I mentioned about the last waterfall, but it focuses on the intensity alone.
To me, this image is the peak of the intensity. It is the height of the chaos and is the perfect note to end the gallery.
