Through the eyes of nature (joanne Castillo)

This gallery includes a representation on emotional perspectives using nature or landscapes. These pictorial pieces brought out the emotions felt by the artist by using the elements of nature such as human figures, vegetation, structures, buildings, the sky, etc. To name a few, loneliness, power, and calmness are expressed in these wonderful art pieces.

This painting is well represented by Alsina. He artistically uses his brush strokes to depict the dry, rocky, and rugged mountain scenery and displays the depth perspective of the panoramic frame with blurred brush strokes. He also uses curved, vertical, and horizontal lines to add the shape and details to the rocks. We can’t forget about the man walking on the mountain alone, which signifies that he is a solitary traveler.
In this pictorial representation, Urgell expressed his personal view on the romantic feelings of loneliness and depression by using a humble rural structure that is alone in the countryside. It is brightened by a medium light of the day bringing the focus to the structure and the foreground, which highlights desolation. This brings a feeling of solitude under the gloomy sky.
John Glover is known as one the most significant landscape artists outside of Europe. In this painting, he brings warm and cool emotions as he bathes the three figures and cattle with the warmth of the sunlight while the woman basks in music that is being played for them. He transitions the warm foreground into a cool atmosphere as the viewer moves into the distance with soft but brighter colors.
Robert unified his taste for architecture and inspiration in this piece. He brings together the power of history and the power of the natural element fire. Displaying only female figures running from the fire added more power and emotions to the scene. The colors of the fire also show off the stonework and details of the monuments.
The solitary tree stands in the middle of the painting showing strength. It has survived wind and weather. The dome shape of the darker side of the clouds also gives focus to the tree. It is the middle ground between heaven and earth. The tips of the branches on top of the tree point up towards the sky to show that there is life beyond life on earth.
Anton Mauve, an admired water colorist, intelligently used a darker shade of colors to bring out this gloomy mood. The body language also shows in the human figure and animals as they walk down a lengthy muddy wet road. The linear perspective shows how long the road is. He furthers shows this by adding another figure in the distance walking on the road.
The coastal view of this painting was done with accuracy. The Italian seascape glows with brilliant color and radiance, captivates the the viewer's eyes and takes it off into the distance. The brush stokes were precise as one can see the details of the trees and the buildings in the distance. Although there is a light fog the shapes and colors were used with great balance.
This peaceful piece has a charming detail of the herd and figure in relaxation. The earth tone colors give a sense of tranquility. There is an equal balance of the arrangement of the mountains and shrubbery. As the sun sets, it's rays hover over the large areas which adds to the calmness of the painting.
This painting is split into two parts and is described as an “interesting and horribly wondrous sight”. To the left, is the volcanic eruption, which defines the horror and, to the right, suggests a tourist site, which describes the wondrous. The two figures is used to show the scale of the volcanic eruption. Dahl paints this piece equally well making it bittersweet.
Vicente used a light and soft glow that is illuminated by the trees within itself. The artist used brown, green, and grey tones to paint a delicate and relaxed painting with fresh tender greens. The light touches show a nice representation of the serenity and stillness that nature has to offer.
