This module is about the study of the colours within sea and sky and below I have made a collection of some paintings that interest me and photos that I have taken.
In 1998 I went to an exhibition by Jonathan Miller at the National Gallery entitled “On Reflection”. I thoroughly enjoyed this exhibition and bought the catalogue. There were a number of examples of reflections in mirrors, windows, shiny bowls and also in water. Here are some examples:
Burne-Jones Study for Mirror of Venus Caillebotte – L’Yerres in the Rain
Carter-Bresson Place de l’Europe in the Rain Escher – Rippled surface
Another exhibition that I enjoyed many years ago at the Royal Academy was Monet in the ‘90s in which they exhibited series of his paintings and it is interesting to see how the skies all differ depending on the time of year or the time of day. Again I have taken these images from the catalogue I bought at the time.
Three images taken from the internet showing Turner’s skies.
Here is a selection of images I have taken, some recently and some from my files.
