Robert Genn - Master of Colour and Design

Robert Genn is one of Canada's foremost artists. He is an undisputed master of colour and design.

I found this painting and the following comment, written by Diane Mize in Empty

The overall bluish tone unifies, while purplish-red accents bring harmony throughout. Repeating greens set the visual path and give rise to rhythm. Emphasis results from the highlights in the water contrasting with the surrounding blue and dark gray rocks.
