Switzerland Village is another study of Edgar Payne. The perspective of the village and grand scale of the mountains is gorgeous. All of the mountain and snow shapes point to the church steeple. Available at: ow.ly/Aq9h30hpu6d
Switzerland Village 6x6"
The warm light and cool shadows are consistent. Even the house shade side is of the same color family as the shade of the trees and mountains. This provides unity and clarifies the main focus of the steeple. It also makes the green foreground hold your attention to the village. There are so many (and more) details of support to his focal point, and that is what makes studying his work so much fun for me.
