They run out of water while the weather gets really hot. Everyone blames him for killing the albatross that they replace the cross with dead albatross around his neck to remind him of his error. Next, he indirectly get everyone on the ship dead because of the sin he commits. Feeling guilty, the Mariner wants to pray because he is still be cursed. But the Mariner escapes his curse by unconsciously blessing the water snakes, and the albatross drops off his neck into the ocean.
The unique texture used by Rothko helps the painting look dynamic and expressive. Unlike Mondrain, whose rectangles have sharp edges and even color, Rothko made the edge of his rectangles blurry, and the density of color uneven. It is easy to discover that the picture plane of White and Greens in Blue is built up by layers and layers of small brush strokes, and the brush marks are sometimes dense and sometimes sparse. This indicates that Rothko paints in a very spontaneous way. For example,
In the painting, the focus is on the farmer plowing his field, while in the corner one can see the legs of Icarus drowning in the sea. Auden and Williams were both impressed with how Brueghel portrayed this famous Greek myth about Icarus. Icarus was obsessed with the idea of flying, but found his death in the water. Brueghel almost waters down Icarus’ demise, focusing more on the everyday life of a simple farmer, fisherman, and a shepherd. In order to draw attention to Icarus, William states, "Unsignificantly/ off the coast /there was/ a splash quite unnoticed".
Texture on each of the sculptures creates a large realistic rendition of a badminton birdie. The artists also used great contrasting colors. The bases of these shuttlecocks have been painted in a very vibrant orange while the feathers are a bright white. The grass on the lawn is a very bright grassy-green color, which allows the sculptures to pop. The shuttlecocks were created in the shape of an obvious triangle.
“Watson and the Shark” was painted in 1778 by John Singleton Copley, an American artist living in England at the time. He used oil on canvas to create this masterpiece. The dimensions are 72 1/4 by 90 3/8 inches. The painting depicts a shark attack on a fourteen-year-old boy, Brook Watson. The painting is based on the real attack that took place in Havana Harbor in 1749, where Watson was saved after losing his lower left leg.
The parachute man is then blown out to see which could symbolise the beast leaving the island. In the two pages Golding refers heavily to water, the rain, the sea and finally the trickle of water, Golding may have put this in to remind us of simons blood which was trickling into the sand. As simon is slowly being washed away Golding uses a lot of light description “The edge of the lagoon became a streak of phosphorescence...”, “...mirrored the clear sky and the angular bright constellations.” Golding may have used these bright images as a contrast to the dark rainy ones he used right after simon was killed, showing that now that simon is being washed away it is a good thing, so simon being washed away could symbolise simon going on to heaven. In the two pages where simon gets killed golding uses violent and powerful
After only a few moments the viewer is thrown into a horrific scene where soldiers kill his family and burn his home. As Whales sifts through the ashes he retrieves his pistol and looks into the distance. In the next scene he is seen burying his family and crying uncontrollably. The scene fades to the sound of gunfire and the camera zooms in on a fence post being used for target practice. As the shooting continues the camera shot turns 180 degrees and zooms in on the hollow and pinpointed eyes of Whales who seems to be staring beyond the camera at his target.
Caroline Santarelli “Book Thief” Prologue Page Number | Literary Element/Technique Being Used in the Passage | Importance of the literary element/technique | 1 | Tone | When the author writes in the beginning of page one, “You are going to die,” he does this to set the overall tone for the whole story, dark, mysterious, and puzzling. | 9 | Personification | The author gives a crashed plane the characteristics of a bird by saying “Smoke was leaking from both its lungs,” because planes are often compared to birds and he wants to show that this “little metallic bird” can no longer take flight due to its bad crash landing. | 12 | Hyperbole | “They were all glued down,” is an exaggeration, the author says this sentence to show how
Art Analysis: Janet Fish In Janet Fish’s painting, the main thing I notice is the fluidity of the piece. While she uses many shapes and colors, she unifies them all by overlapping objects, and making every object a bit reflective. The overlapping areas create great movement, bringing the eye across the painting, from the plant on the left, to the fish bowl, and then to the plates, bowls, and back across to the fruit. The positive space is very complex in this painting, with intricate variations of glassware, metals, fruit and much more. The varying textures, shapes and complexity of the objects in the painting find balance with the asymmetry of the placement of the objects, plus the subtle symmetry of certain objects such as the bowls and plates.
