Vah Gog often wrote the sea. He was attracted by the beauty of the waves, which he could portray gracefully and impetuously, in the best traditions of impressionism.
The picturesque landscape of the famous author consists of several layers of blue foaming waves, a turbulent flow of water and the power of the sea element. Smears, thickly applied to the canvas, give the sea a rich juicy appearance.
Depth, the sound of waves, the wind, swinging boats – all this creates a certain atmosphere, excites the imagination. To some, the picture will seem bright and sunny, and to someone dark, foreshadowing a storm or a storm. Vah Gogh managed to capture the diversity of those places, while preserving for the viewer some mystery, uncertainty. The sky is depicted in the same multi-faceted and ambiguous manner, as well as waves from side to side.
The work calls on the viewer to appreciate the beauty of the moment: the creator does not just paint the landscape, he conveys the heat of the sun to the best, air, and the movement of water. That is why the “Sea in Saint-Marie” seems authentic, alive, and not just depicted. Snow-white sails, sagging in the wind, lead to believe in the authenticity of the moment, give naturalness and naturalness. Vog Gogh very well combines the shades of the sky with water: so the picture seems to be whole, one, but the horizon does not merge. Yellowish-green oil paints give the work a special entourage and uniqueness.
The main part in the work is the position of the boats: they are located at different levels, moving away into the blue distance. The ships loosening in the wind more resemble steps, on which the spectator walks, being in the open spaces of the charismatic sea of St. Mary. Thus, the author makes a certain philosophical message to his work.
