Atmospheric Perspective in Landscape Paintings

Painting of summer field with yellow flowers.
Summer Field 8x10 oil/linen

This is a little painting I did close to where I live. I stopped to paint it noticing first the atmosphere as a result from the heat of the day.

It is my opinion, as well as some other artists, that atmosphere in a landscape painting is essential to express depth.

I like to tempt the viewer in by showing depth in my landscapes, like a hiker on a trail.
