Implied Space in Skyline

  1. For this blog entry I have chosen an oil painting of the New York City Skyline. I chose this specific painting because it shows the great implied space through the buildings behind each other, the sky behind all the different buildings, and the water that is in front of the buildings. The implied space shows great depth and even though it is a flat oil painting, because of the artists use and knowledge of implied space, it appears as though all of the objects are where they would actually be in real life. This technique the artist uses really adds an attractive element for the viewer because it appears like real life. The more real looking a painting is the more the viewer can relate to it. In my opinion a painting of the skyline without the use of the implied space, would just not look correct and I would actually be interested to see what the outcome would be of a fully flat skyline with no use of the implied space.
