Fall series

Postby mdmattin » Sat Dec 18, 2010 6:20 am

I did these on three different occasions at the same place last fall. I posted the first one earlier, but here it is again, just to make the set. One thing I was attempting was to get a sense of depth, with a foreground, middle and background, when the autumn air was so clear that aerial perspective was almost absent, and the painting was so small that there wasn't a large range of detail to vary to suggest depth. I tried to use linear patterns to push some elements forward or back.
