|11 x 14 pastel on board|
I finished this painting today. This one was challenging for me. Not only was it complicated, but I had to portray a sense of distance. In the artsy world, this is called "atmospheric perspective". As I painted, I would remember the words of my instructors on how to do this. In a nutshell, the farther away the objects, the less intense the colors are and they appear bluer and also less detail and contrast.
