Fine Art Painting, Linear Perspective - "Old Sawmill"



Old Sawmill
Original Fine Art Painting
Acrylic on wrapped canvas on wood stretcher bars
8 by 10 by 0.75 inches, 20.4 by 25.5 by 1.9 cm

I was interested in the oblique shape of the sawmill receding into space. I used linear perspective diminishing the size and edges of the building. The edges converge to a point on the horizon or eye level. You must be careful using linear perspective as it can leave the viewer in the background. I used a number of techniques to avoid this problem including a darker background for the building.

I have not yet posted this painting on my internet shops.
