Colors of earth- orlando colon

This gallery will include mostly paintings of landscapes of nature with interesting color schemes that will for the most part define the art and the artists mindset while working on the piece. A lot can be said about a paining by the color used to accompany the piece and that is mostly what I'll be getting into with this gallery. Hope you enjoy.

In this painting Claude Lorrain paints a a beautiful sunset (noted by the colors in the sky) Which in it an artist is painting the scenery before him. This is a very scenic painting. It shows the very vibrant colors both in the background with the orange of the sky mixing with the blues to get the sunset feel as well as in the foreground with the tree sharing autumn colors in the leafs.
Thomas Cole's painting "From Nature" is a very simple painting. A decaying tree. A very odd-looking tree at first glance. Thomas used the “Split complementary” color technique in this painting, as it is only displays two colors opposite of each other. The somewhat white of the paper and the black of the inks he used.
John La Farge painted this simple yet stunning painting of a hollyhock which from by the title I can only assume its being bathed in sunlight. This painting is a peaceful one when looking upon it. This is because of the complementary color technique used. It makes the painting rich in contrast and just visually pleasing.
Suk, Chul Joo Paints what seems like a flower in a pot laying on the grass. Despite there actually being two colors (green and brown) it feels as if the whole painting is done in only different shades of green. The flowerpot although being a brigher green, is blurry and appears to be drowning under the darker green colored grass.
Cang Xin took this picture of a landscape view of a lake. The colors in this picture are extremely beautiful and very diverse. In the background the dark mountains in contrast with the white snow and clouds embracing them. The blue of the lake abruptly interrupted by the orange/brown dirt. The saturation of the colors really makes this image come to life before you.
Gang She-hwang paints a mountainside where on top sits what appears to be a house or school overlooking the view. A very simple color palette consisting of only 3 colors yet it displays such a calm and awe-inspiring work of art. In the entirety of the painting the only precise colored piece is the house/school sitting atop the mountain. All else is just brush strokes that serve well their purpose.
Yi Han-Cheol paints a simple landscape in which two people look over their home and the surrounding nature all around them. Yi Han gives another perfect example of the "split complementary" technique of using two opposing colors to bring about the painting.
Andrew Warren painted a scenic view of a Long Island homestead. This oil painting is extremely rich in color and really gives the presence in nature with just a glance. The dancing blues and whites in the sky while the different shades of green blend together smoothly, this painting provides the feeling of warmth and peacefulness.
Myung Jin painted acrylic on canvas a sort of strange separated world where finger people inhabit it. This painting has the essence of nature all over it with the greens practically popping out at you from the white -what I assume to be- water. Although not the most relaxing painting to look at based on its color palette it does have some strange sense of peacefulness.
Samuel Palmer painted a farmer in farm surrounded by trees in every direction. The use of color in this painting gives off a very relaxing vibe and mood. The isolation of a single tree by the use of contrast making the tree brighter while everything else in very dark shade in comparison is pretty amazing.
