Acrylic on Gessobord

In this painting I used the fence to create a sense of depth. A principle of perspective drawing is objects get smaller and less defined as they recede into space. For example, the fence post that is closest to us is clearly defined and contains a lot of detail but the ones in the distance are many times smaller and aren't detailed at all.
I enjoyed working with the color in this painting, I used the blue/purple of the shadow side of the fence to contrast with the yellow of the field. I like how the barn provides a small touch of red to the painting.
