Implied Space

This painting was created by Bob Ross entitled, "Mountain Waterfall." Most, if not all of his paintings show implied space. For example, the tall shrubbery covering part of the tree to the right and the river gives the impression that the shrubs are closer to you. Atmospheric perspective is used to blur some of the background trees as they go further back, and parts of the mountain so you can't tell how far back it goes. Overlapping the trees in front of the mountain allows you to imagine that the mountain is further back, but not as far back as the clouds are. There is even implied motion to the water, where the waterfall first begins it is white like its churning, but as you follow the river the water calms down turning a shade of blue. If you would like to see this painting being created click on the provided link. God bless.                   

 Happy Little Painting
