Impressionism's Best

This weekend I visited the new exhibit on sailing at San Francisco's Legion of Honor.  With the likes of Renoir and Monet included in the exhibit, it was easy to sit and soak in all the 'action' in the paintings.

Many of the paintings are scenes of regattas and life along harbors.  All these had amazing reflections of boats, buildings, and people in the water.  Reds, yellows, greens [generally every shade but blue] blended together to make awesome rivers and oceans.  Some of the boats are blue so we can tell where the water starts!

This adventurous use of color, shading, and juxtaposition made the visit special.  There are so many ideas to absorb at the show.  It's definitely a fun overwhelming.
