SWI2-Ph ColorsAcadia

The pallet of natural color on stone from Acadia National Park, ME. Note pink granite just left of center along bottom. This is the true color of the rock. The rest are associated with rust, salts, and sulfates associated with weathering of the surface. Note tuft of grass at left.

Stone walls can be:

  • Seen as examined as a genre of Folk Art.
  • Used to illustrate the fundamental elements of art, notably color, line, texture, pattern, and shading.
  • Used as a still life object to be interpreted using any medium, such as by sketches, drawings, paintings, models, or sculpture.
