The movement within storms -Reneé Scholl

This gallery is a collection of works showing movement within a storm. From photographs to paintings, each medium displays the movement of the storm in a different way. Regardless of the medium used, an artist is able to show just how different the movement can be from one storm to another. The calm breeze of a rain storm can be very subtle, while the wicked winds of a tornado are very violent. 

This is a photograph capturing a storm on the water in Cape Ann, MA. This image uses values to draw the viewer's attention to the the water. With the background being dark, we can see the lighter colors giving shape to the raging sea. This photograph captures the lines within the water allowing the viewers to see the movement in the water and waves.
This is a photograph of a flood caused by a storm. While we cannot see the storm itself, we can see the damage it has caused. The viewers are able to look at this and see the lines created by the moving water. These lines even circle around to show the directions in which they are flowing.
Here, we see a photograph of an ordinary plant. This photograph was taken during a dust storm. Red colors are used here which give the viewer the idea that it's hot and dry. And, the plant is is leaning to the side with all of it's petals pointing to the left. The artist captured this image allowing us to see the movement caused by the dust storm and winds.
This well known painting is a favorite to many. The lines used throughout the entire panting give it a unique texture. These lines create swirls in the night sky giving the painting the appearance of a blowing breeze. Without the lines creating this pattern the viewers would not be able to see the motion created within this beautiful painting.
This painting is very lifelike and looks much like a photograph. The dark clouds give it the feeling of a stormy day while the white caps on the waves allow the viewers to see the movement of the ocean. Lines and values are used again to give the visual of movement caused by a storm.
This is another painting of a landscape with stormy waters. Lines are used a lot within this piece to show the rough waters and the angry sky. The values of lights and darks are shown to make us see the white caps of the water as the storm moves in toward the land.
This oil painting is another example of the use of line. Lines are created through the water allowing us to see the movement in the high seas and rough waters. The use of value and color are also used which give this piece contrast. The small boat in the water appears lost in this raging storm with high water and dark skies.
This piece is a painting that shows movement and the use of space. Movement is seen in the dark clouds above that appear to be a storm moving in. You are also able to see the person's clothing blowing toward the right of the image. The use of space is giving the piece the proportionate views of the water and mountains to the back, as well as the land toward to front of the painting. The way space is used for the sky and all portions of land, it makes the painting look three dimensional.
Another painting shows a storm moving in and high seas. We're able to see the use of space again with the lighthouse in the back, the clouds, the sky, and the land all being proportionately scaled to life-like sizes within view. We're able to see the movement created by the storm by the tilted boat, the lines creating the waves, and the lines creating the rain coming down from the clouds.
The photograph we see here seems very bland in colors but it does a great job showing movement. Storms don't always have to show heavy rains and violent winds. They can simply be clouds in the sky with a mild breeze. This photograph captures wind blowing the trees to the side. Once again, we see values of darks and lights which help us to visualize that movement within this particular storm and photograph.
