Gaia's hue by ana patricia alvarado

The theme of this gallery is color in nature. The works presented here will portray the different variations of color in nature. Those variations consist mostly of how light affects different bodies such as plants, animals or landscapes; and the organic pigments that are innate in nature's creatures and elements. 

Pichincha, Frederic Edwin Church, American, 1826 - 1900, 1867, From the collection of: Philadelphia Museum of Art
This is a photorealistic oil painting of a beautiful tropical landscape. The rendering is really subtile. The yellow light complements harmonically with the green hues of the vegetation.
River Ice, John Fulton Folinsbee, ca. 1936, From the collection of: James A. Michener Art Museum
The whites and blues of the snow pop out compared with the somber mud, water and vegetation. The brightness of the snow gives a glow to the grim and serious mood of the whole painting.
The Morning of Life, Asher B. Durand, 1840, From the collection of: National Academy of Design
The color palette used into this painting relies mostly on yellows, greens and browns due to the theme of the landscape. The dim lightning complements the soothing mood of the piece.
Landscape at Saint-Rémy (Enclosed Field with Peasant), Vincent van Gogh, 1889, From the collection of: Indianapolis Museum of Art at Newfields
Van Gogh's style makes colors pop out. The saturation he uses gives movement and rhythm to the whole scene. The different colors in the mountains and fields portray the different kinds of vegetation.
Autumn Leaves, Yokoyama Taikan, 1931, From the collection of: Adachi Museum of Art
Another Japanese traditional painting. The strong blue of the river contrasts with the red auburn of the leaves. The strong black lines of the bark of the tree emphasizes the shape of it.
Alpine Pasture, Giovanni Segantini, 1893/1894, From the collection of: Kunsthaus Zürich
Exquisite use of rendering to provide the effect of shadows from trees. The strong light makes the hues of green and yellow more saturated and vivid. The reflective lake is intriguing.
Fire's on, Arthur Streeton, 1891, From the collection of: Art Gallery of New South Wales
The harsh brush strokes compliment very well the rocky mountains because that the shadows and highlights seem more natural. The rock's sandy colors make the clear sky pop out.
Water Lilies, Claude Monet, 1916, From the collection of: The National Museum of Western Art, Tokyo
Impressionists like Monet, are experts in portraying vibrant colors and light change. In this painting we can notice the harsh contrast of color of the water lilies with the reflective pond.
Fifty-Three Stations of the Tokaido Hoeido Edition “Yui (Satta Pass)”, Utagawa Hiroshige, 1833, From the collection of: Shizuoka city Tokaido Hiroshige Museum of Art
This painting shows the authentic style of Japanese traditional art due to its flatness and defined lines. The artist creates contrast in the landscape by using a degrading diffusion of the values.
Undergrowth with Two Figures, Vincent van Gogh (Dutch, b.1853, d.1890), 1890, From the collection of: Cincinnati Art Museum
The use of unusual colors in the trees provide contrast and emphasis. The complementary colors make the saturation of elements stronger. Different shades of green and yellow provide depth.
