Laundry Day in Brazil
About this artwork
Artist Paula Martino offers a sunny view of a countryside home in the quiet rural district of Brazil. With the use of a palette knife, Paula captures the temperate scenery in vibrant warm hues. The same palette extends itself into the sky creating an orange and pink atmosphere. The landscape radiates heat while compositionally balanced by a refreshing flourish of vegetation. The colors beat the midday sun onto terra cotta roofs as surrounding trees cast sharp shadows below. A white truck peeks from the driveway beside a wooden fence. Pops of color in blue, green, purple, and yellow appear in the courtyard from pieces of laundry strung along clotheslines.
