The passageway

Gordale scar was painted by James Ward. In the painting it shows a limestone cliff with with a variety of animals in the middle. Toward the back of the painting a waterfall is shown. The waterfall catches the viewers attention by being a bright shade of light blue and white in the dark passageway. Ward used a lot of dark tones in this piece, such as in the sky dark clouds are shown, the cliffs are a dreary gray. I decided to name my blog post “The passageway” because the seperation of the cliff by the river led to a passageway for many animals such as cattle and deer.

One thought on “The passageway

  1. Breanna, “The Passageway” offers a thoughtful examination of James Ward’s Gordale Scar, but it doesn’t draw any parallels between Ward’s painting and one of the Romantic-period works that you’ve read for class. Adding that comparison and correcting errors of punctuation and style would strengthen the post.
