The oil painting "ImplosionaE by Connie Balton is similar to the oil painting "Street at Aurers After Van GoghaE by Phyllis Dougherty. They are both very much alive in colors and the works seem to draw the viewer to them. The "ImplosionaE painting looks to be of a ship sailing off into the sunset. It consists of mostly blacks and reds. The painting by Dougherty is full of different colors from the primary to the tertiary. When viewing the painting you get a sense that the scene is very much alive and full of happiness. Even though both paintings are oil based they are done very differently. While Dougherty's looks smooth and clean Balton's appears to be messy and the oil smeared around in short controlled gestures. Both paintings appear to have taken a lot of time to perfect and make the colors go together.
The painting "Red SunsetaE by Bill Morris is an exquisite piece of artwork. This piece out of all the others I saw really attracted my attention to it.
