Distance at Kay's Place_Landscape, hills, cows

Distance at Kay's Place___6 x 8 oil on canvas panel___$150
This one made it home without dirt all over it like yesterday's painting ...My challenge on this work was to keep that hill back there in the distance. In real life the WHOLE SCENE was way in the distance...I brought it forward for a better composition. This is a good way to learn how to paint distance, because it's already "there"...If this scene was really as close to the viewer as it appears, your eye can compensate and SEE more detail in the artist needs to tell the story of more distance, by exaggerating a little bit!
