In the moment

Enough said! The most famous and popularized Munch painting...he did several versions of the piece in different mediums...a very unique approach to an unsettling emotion at the time...a triangular compositions, moving from the main "screaming" figure, up the right and across the sky to the two figures on the left hand side and back down to the figure.

The line work and waves of paint/emotion carries the viewer around visually like directional arrows on a highway...a strong complimentary color scheme, blue and orange, balanced with brown/neutrals...creating visual vibration, parallel to those feelings during a scream.
