The Wave by Pierre-Auguste Renoir depicts the sea churning with energy. Lots of different colors are used in this painting, such as red, blue, yellow, and green. The see is usually represented with cool colors, but the colors mostly used in this painting are warm colors. Looking at the brushstrokes on the surface, it is easy to see where Renoir moved his brush though the thick paint; the movement can be easily seen with its rough texture. This painting makes you feel complicated at a first glance, but it will give the feeling of relief from all stress and worries eventually.
