Aerial Perspective II

Peaceful Dreams

I have always wanted to paint a picture of a scene like this. The problem has been that I have not spent any time in places where this happens. This month's WC landscape challenge offers this plus two other great photos to paint. Not only do I love the subject, it offered me another opportunity to work on aerial perspective. I had to work to make the fields move from near to far using value and hue. I wanted to have the lighter field in the front slightly darker than the light fields in the distance. It was an interesting challenge, but I really enjoyed doing it. If you are interested, the reference photo was taken on Prince Edward Island in Canada.

Clearly, I have not visited your site in a while - today there are so many works I LOVE! This is so soft and lovely and peaceful... I really like it.
