            My third project was an acrylic painting done on canvas. This painting has 4 layers, known as the composition. These include the sky, background, middle ground, and foreground. The sky is stormy, and has lightning, which helps to give the effect of atmospheric pressure. The objects in the background are lighter that those of the foreground. This is also atmospheric pressure. The light source in the painting is the lightning. The edges of the mountains are lit up, along with the shadow of the plants all show the value of the painting. I used an analogous color scheme, with various "blues" in use. Short brush strokes give the feeling of choppy, torn waves, while smoother strokes allow the mountains to look more realistic.
