“The Gleaners“ by Jean Francois Millet<br />It seems that they are picking wheat<br />Possibly slaves<br />Something is going on in the background<br />The textures are well done as well as shading<br />
“Potato Planters” by Jean Francois Millet<br />Usual setting for one of Millets paintings<br />Very simple plot, its just 2 farmers planting potatoes<br />Looks like oil paint<br />Great textures as well as shading<br />
“Man With a Hoe”by Jean Francois Millet<br />Set in a field, as usual with something like a camp spot behind him.<br />Is different because you actually see the mans face.<br />He looks tired, possibly from hoeing.<br />Another painting well done with shading and texture.<br />
Jean Francois Millet<br />Seems to have been influenced by the working man, or women.<br />Sets her painting as in the mitts of an action, a simple one, however it is like a photograph taken as each person was in the middle of an action. <br />Seems to have used much oil paint.<br />Used texture as well as shading and tones to create a more realistic look.<br />
