I'm going to ignore the taunts of the art school bullies, and loudly proclaim that Sisley isn't for "sissies".

foam said...

sometimes i can't get out of a mode .. i look at art and see concepts and how to teach them ..
foreground, middle ground, background..
how to create an illusion of space on a flat piece of paper ..
using geometric forms to create buildings .. linear perspective ..
atmospheric perspective, overlapping ..
ugg.. it's enough now foam ..
go get a glass of wine and chill..
;)

Diane dear they are such beautiful places , I would certainly like to visit, the scenery and the colours are an overload for the senses.
Imagine the how lovely it would be to lay down in one of those meadows, walk one of those paths and look at those skies. ♡

dianne said...

Yes Boney he has learnt very well from the other Impressionits but still he has his own style and colours, I think these works are beautiful.
I would love to step into these scenes he has painted, so much beauty here to admire and sadly he died penniless. ♡

Lee said...

A lovely warmth to them.

dianne said...

Puggles my sweet, dont you listen to those bullies... art is to be admired by all.
There is nothing 'sissy' about you.♡

dianne said...

Sorry Foamie my dear is it too much like the school classroom over here now?

I hope you enjoyed your glass of wine and chill out session. ♡

dianne said...

Thanks Lee dear, I think they are wonderful,they just look so interesting to me, I want to explore, such beautiful scenery and colours, places I would like to visit. ♡

foam said...

nah, not usually .. lol ..
but i just got through teaching many of those concepts .. :)

ANNA-LYS said...

I am impressed :-D

Have a lovely weekend, Diane!

dianne said...

Foamie dear I just thought I would show some more paintings by Sisley, I really admire his work.

The painting that I posted in January 'Rest by the Bank of the Ruisseau', would have to be one of my favourite paintings and I wanted to you all to see more of his works.♡

Notice, no sad poems! Looking for inspiration elsewhere. ♡

dianne said...

I'm pleased that you like the paintings Anna-Lys ; thanks, you have a lovely weekend as well. ♡

Fantastic Forrest said...

Great paintings. You've inspired me to visit our local art museum this weekend, although the collection is sort of weak on things I love. Maybe I will go farther afield...

Speaking of fields, are you as disappointed as I am that the Nature Diary of Col. Brandon is gone? :(

findingmywingsinlife said...

Fantastic Forrest, you've just asked Dianne the very question I was just going to post!

dianne said...

Yes /t. my dear friend, I am a hopeless romantic, what fun I could have here wandering through fields and meadows, picking wildflowers and brushing my hands over fragrant foliage as I walked through gardens and the countryside
...all of my senses would come alive...it would be heavenly for me. ♡

dianne said...

Fantastic Forest thank you for visiting again, I'm pleased you liked the paintins, I think they are beautiful.
I love going to art galleries, its such a pleasant way to spend an afternoon, so much nicer viewing the actual works of art.

I am terribly disappointed that the Colonel has gone, such a loss to us all as I enjoyed his ideals and conversations. ♡

dianne said...

My dear findingmywingsinlife , yes I am disappointed that the Colonel has gone and dont quite understand what has happened.

I will miss our conversations.

Maybe he is devoting all of his time to his new persona, that of Alexandre Fabbri, which I think is such a shame. ♡

The Phosgene Kid said...

Very bucolic and peaceful. The paintings want to make me live there, though I expect none of the locations look like that any longer.

dianne said...

Yes Phossy dear, a lovely place to live, rural and peaceful; no doubt many places have changed but some documentaries I have seen still show idyllic places such as these in the countryside. ♡

ANNA-LYS said...

I am impressed but not an impressionist, I like to
use my own crazy fantasy
and creativity. I am all
surrealistic (psyko-Anna-lytic)

The Phosgene Kid said...

I like paintings done by chimps wearing little red fezzes. Very cutting edge stuff.

dianne said...

Well Anna-Lys , however you want to look at the art, we all have our own way of perceiving images and life itself. ♡

dianne said...

Oh Phossy my dear, you make me laugh, I dont believe I have ever seen chimps wearing red fezzes painting but I believe you.

I once saw a documentary where an elephant was painting and there is a book around which is all about kitties painting, very cute. ♡

ANNA-LYS said...

True Dianne, absolute true!!!
And that is why it is so interesting to meet other peoples thoughts :-D

Ruela said...

very beautiful art!

dianne said...

Yes Anna- Lys , it is interesting to get the thoughts of others and how they perceive these works of art.
For the artists themselves have given us their own impression of landscapes which they have painted in relatively the same localities. We all perceive art in our own way. ♡

dianne said...

Ruela my dear, thank you I knew you would like the paintings, such beautiful colours and a window into a different time. ♡

The Mess said...

Down by the river it looks so quiet and peaceful this summer day. The boat is interesting, it's moored on the river and looks rather big. No chimney from a steam engine and in -72 there where no other engines around, gas, petrol and electricity power all come in the end of the century so.. must be powered by oars :-)

dianne said...

Yes M dear it is a very peaceful Summer scene down by the river and yes you are quite right it would have been powered by oars, a much simpler time and a pleasant way to travel if you didn't have to do all of the rowing. ;-) ♡
