We’ve had two days of rain, so it felt like time for a fall picture.   8 X 10 using Unisons and Ludwigs on Strathmore paper.   Enjoy!

    such an outstanding piece. I really love the power of those snow-capped mountains.

    After seeing it as a larger piece, I was amazed to see the amount of perspective the background “shouted out” in this smaller piece. Why is this?
    I love it.

    Thanks, Thom. You know I always appreciate your comments.

    Leila….thanks for the comment. I believe the reason that you see a difference in the paintings is because of aerial perspective. In the larger version, you see more detail and therefore things appear closer. In the smaller version, you see less detail (as in the field, for instance) and so the field appears larger. If I were to paint this or a similar scene, I would work for that effect. I like the large painting, but you are right that the distances are not as successful. (For those who don’t know what we are referring to….I sent the panting to several people within an email and the painting was a larger size.)
