passionate Themes: Pic Island, Lake Superior
Landscape Lawren Harris used thin, curved, diagonal and horizontal lines. It creates the effect of the landscape. The value of the island is dark and the sky, water and the clouds are light. It makes the island stand out. Social Concerns: The cloud is a natural shape and expresses length and width. The island's hills may look rough, but the paper is smooth. The center of the sky has the most depth,because it is the furthest from the viewer. The clouds create movement, by moving apart and creates movement from the viewer's point of view. The peak of the island shows how the space between the clouds.The reflection of the light in the water shows the spaces between the island and the main land. The repeating pattern of the painting are the edges of the landscape and the clouds. The edges are all the same, they are all pointed. The center of the island catches my attention, because it is a darker color and is part of the highest peak of the island. The water creates a mood of calm and tranquility. The island was painted in a high point of view. The island seems to float on the shimmering surface of the water. The shape of the clouds shows that the island is the main object of the painting. The similar shapes of the island and the clouds edges and the curved shaped of the reflection of light on the surface of the water creates balance and unity. The painting relaxes viewers. Issues: How does the painting reflects the beliefs and Canadian cultures? It reflects the beliefs and cultures of Canadians by showing a lake where people could fish, ride boats and it's about nature. By: Justin
