Guy Rose - American 1867-1925

Carmel Seascape, 21 x 25 inches

Turquoise hues can be made from a mixture of Viridian Green and Cobalt Blue.
To give the image a unified appearance, paler touches of the colours used for the water have been added to the foliage in the foreground. The warm pinks in the foreground advance, giving a sense of depth. The subtlest touch of pink in the sky, usually near the horizon, integrates the top and bottom of the painting. Pinks also bring out the green shades in the sea. Colours are never seen in isolation but are modified by the colours around them.
