In the painting the different values of the water and sky add depth to the painting while the different colors of the flames and smoke are very different so that the fire is more apparent. The colors and values of the painting contrast to show parts of the painting better. The values in the sky and water contrast and work off of each other to show a horizon line. The bright flame in the corner contrasts with the soot and smoke which draws viewers eyes to that area of the painting.
