Inspiring Landscapes! (Part 2)
Posted on February 12, 2011
I feel like admiring some new landscapes today!
Landscape painters like to use the sunset lighting to create their depictions. Most of times we are hit by the feeling of loneliness when we see this kind of painting.
You can see Part 1 HERE.
Aqueduct near Rome, by Thomas Cole
I have a sense of infinity looking at this aquedct. It seems lost in space, lonely. The sunset intensifies these feelings.
Arch of Nero, by Thomas Cole
Here we can see many lines converging from the Arch of Nero. It is the “portal” of this painting, and it’s inviting us to immerse into this beautiful painting.
Salisbury Cathedral from the Bishops’ Grounds, by John Constable
The dark foreground focuses our attention to what really matters and it’s on the background: the cathedral.
Panoramic Landscape, by Ufer Walter
Probably inspired by Van Gogh, Ufer Walter created a landscape where the colours are the major responsibles for the vivacity of this painting.
by Verveer Samuel
The brushstrokes are polished, almost unperceptible. The building is distant, but at the same time imposing. The sunset, once more, is the choise of lighting.
Inshore, by Nikolai Blokhin
Look closer and you will see an AMAZING rough texture on the sea.
