My Favorite Pieces of Art
Undergrowth with Two Figures (1890) by Vincent van Gogh Van Gogh’s Undergrowth with Two Figures was created with oil on canvas, and is a part of a series of paintings called Trees and Undergrowth.
This painting was created using body color & watercolor. There is a lot of warmth & shading, including light on the left side highlighting the ears, illuminating the fur & bringing life to the eyes.
Garden at Arles by Vincent van Gogh This painting is a part of a series, and is loaded with vibrant colors and many small and short brushstrokes.
A Sunday on La Grande Jatte by George Seurat George Seurat's use of light, color, blending & shading, and his use of the pointillism technique makes this painting unique and unforgettable.
Water Lilies by Claude Monet Created with mostly thin vertical strokes of oil paints, this extremely large painting is a part of a series of landscapes.
The Morning of Life by Asher B. Durand The use of light and shadows in this landscape painting go from one extreme to the next, making this piece visually appealing.
Manfredonia, Molo di Ponente by Wolfgang Lettl I just love this painting by the Surrealist artist Wolfgang Lettl, so I had to add it to my gallery.
