about this painting:
GERMANY - CLOUDS ABOVE THE RHINE
White clouds above the white towns on Rhine
Oil painting color theory teaches us that:
· There are primary and secondary colors that can be received as you mix the colors. You will not be able to get primary colors from mixing. Black and white are excluded from the color theory.
· There are warm and cool colors, and each color features bias to one of the groups. When 2 warms are mixed, secondary warm is received. When 2 colds are mixed, secondary cold is received.
· Using the rules of this theory, a minimal number of tube paints can give you many colors.
Looking at the oil painting of Afremov “Germany - Clouds above the Rhine” we see the approach, which is unusual for classic art. Trying to express their immediate impressions of things most accurately, the Impressionists created a new method of painting. Its essence was to transfer the impression of light, shadows, reflections on the surface of objects with separate strokes of colors. These strokes visually dissolved the form in the ambient light and air.
Personal perception is at the basis of Impressionism
The painters denied the plausibility. The likelihood was a priority, not a personal perception. In this way, Impressionists could make the sky green, the grass – blue, depending on their vision. Fruit on their still lifes were unrecognizable, human figures - are vague and sketchy. In this respect this painting is an exception. Everything is understandable on it, even childish in some respect.
The main thing was the answer to the question how the scene is depicted. It was not important what was depicted. The object becomes less important, just a means to solve visual problems.
Small town in German style on the Rhine
The painting “Germany - Clouds above the Rhine” is created with clear and pure colors. Thanks to them, the city is very nice. We see a green city with much vegetation and white buildings for the most part. White is accented with white clouds in the clear sky. There is stunning architecture in this settlement of Germany. The strings of amazing castles become a charming addition that add specific national color to the beauty of Germany. The houses on Rhine are built with famous German accuracy. There is order in everything here.
