Early Artists of the West took great risks to capture the scenic wonder.
Using James Palmersheim's silver creek's November II as a starting point, students will create their own landscape paintings. Students will learn various techniques to create an effective foreground, middle ground, and background. Students will also learn how to portray the illusions of depth and reflection in a painting.
Albert Bierstadt (January 7, 1830-February 18, 1902) was a German American painter best known for his large landscapes of the American West. Bierstadt joined several journeys of the Western Expansion to see these majestic places.
His paintings are detailed with romantic glowing lighting sometimes called luminism.
