Here’s my schedule for this week
Grey Tree from 1911 by Peit Mondrian
This painting’s major use of the element value helps create a sense of eeriness and gloom. Creating shadows and atmosphere with the way Mondrain manipulates brush strokes and use of his line weight, forming closure with the figure of the tree. By examining the background, one can make out the rough texture formed via Mondrain’s strokes. As the branches spread out and vary in size and shape, crossing over each other and under each other, they form negative space between them and enclosing the background in the holes they make in the sense of a barred jail cell.
