Now of colour it must be noted that the color which reaches the eye from any part of a given object is made up of several factors, first there is what we call the local colour of the object, secondly the colour of the incident light at that point, thirdly the angle at which the light strikes the surface (for the further from a right angle that it falls, the less will the local colour affect the light which is given off from the object) and finally there is the alteration of the colour by the atmosphere lying between the object and the eye.
--"The Philosophy of Impressionism," Fry
A late afternoon sun is shining across a landscape; in the foreground we will suppose there is the figure of a woman with white bonnet and pink dress gleaning in the stubble feild across which her shadow is cast. What will surprise the spectator, unaccustomed to Impressionist ways of looking at nature, will be, among other things, the intense blue violet colour on certain parts of the white bonnet--the blue green and violet cast shadows and the intense purple of certain shaded parts of the pink dress.
--"The Philosophy of Impressionism," Fry
"Here, sometimes, those who knew her experiences would stand and observe her, and wonder what sombre thoughts were beating inside that impassive, wrinkled brow, to the rhythm of the alternating milk-streams."
