I love the spring. The air is warmer, the birds are singing, and the trees come out in blossom. This painting combines some of my favorite techniques while showing off the beauty of the season. I have atmospheric perspective. The stop sign on the left looks closer than the person on the right because it is painted larger than she is. There is linear perspective. The roadway is wider the closer it is to us, then narrows as it goes further. Both of these techniques give a feeling of depth in the painting. The shadows and light give the feeling that the sunlight is shining towards us. If only I could portray the aroma of the blossoms in the tree!
