Paul Cezanne – The Forest Clearing 1900

The colour scheme used in this image is cool colours like the blues and greens mixed with the paleness of the white. Tones of orange faded into brown are seen in this image, along with the mixing of white with the blues and browns to create texture. The white being mixed with other colours creates a reflection in the water and allows the viewer to see light and shade and depth in the image. Analogous colours are also used in this image, the mixture of the blue and green together really does harmonize the image and it allows the two colours to blend and create an overall cold feeling. This particular image gives me the feeling of being cold and windswept with the movement of the trees shown and the coolness of the blue surrounding the trees.
