On The Beach
The painting above is "On the Beach" by Edouard Manet (1873). This painting intrigues me because it really captures the haziness you see on a beach. The water from the ocean appears to give everything a blurry appearance and he really captured this. He also did a great job with the coloring of the ocean water, it goes from a light blue to dark blue very smoothly. I also enjoy how the characters in the front look so peaceful. The women appears to be enjoying a book while the man appears deep in thought. In my eyes they both appear content. I feel i can relate to this feeling when I am at the beach.
