The Colossus- Goya

This painting captured my attention because of the huge giant like man who looks like he is standing over the village. At the bottom the village people look like they are running away while the giant looks like he is about to fight something. This is a powerful painting that represents fear just by the dark tones being used. I like how the giants legs fade into the mountain while his hair and upper body fades into the night sky. The light colors surrounding him suggests fire and destruction.
