Paul Klee Landscape with sunset 1923
Flat, shapes and colours
Klee Station L112
What would happen if I tried simplifying all into shapes and colours like this?
Georgia O'Keefe Lake George - Autumn 1922
The trees are very strongly rounded - sensual.
Try overdoing it like this
Greyed colours show the low light
Oscar Bluemner No. 6 Valley
Simplified shapes again, this time curved.
Oscar Bluemner Port Amboy West (Tottenville)
Emphasis on the geometric, with the tones and colours secondary. Try it!
Stanley Spencer Landscape in North Wales
Detail definitely secondary to 3D shapes provided by tone contrasts.
Stanley Spencer Cookham Flowers in a Window
Detail is important but hasn't overcome the shapes of the roofs and hedges.
