I had been to the Indiana State Fair. I was intrigued by the people I saw. They were all sizes and shapes and every color.
When I tried to paint what I’d seen, I used atmospheric perspective to give a feeling of depth. I had the closest people larger, with more distinct coloring. Note the woman with her two children. As the people were further back, the detail in their faces began to fade. The man pushing the stroller has some features showing, but the people in the top right of the painting have no facial characteristics. Your mind automatically puts that info in for you. Also the ones further back are smaller and the colors fade.
