Student Statement

Professor Groat, In this piece I’m attempting to get more atmosphere and depth in my landscape paintings. Your demo has really helped me understand how to do this.

Halls Critique

Boa,  This is one of my favorite paintings by you.  You’ve done a terrific job at suggesting subtle details within the large, simple areas.  The stream pulls me into the composition, and the cloud reflections add lots of rhythm.  In future pieces work towards varying the temperatures within your cloud forms. For example, the large clouds overhead could contain a bit more warmth (i.e yellow ochre) to pull them forward and suggest the daylight. As the clouds become smaller, approaching the horizon line, they could begin to cool off and recede.
