Creative Monday Challenge - Week 35 - High Horizon

FRESH SNOW
Watercolor - 11x15

I am not at all ready for snow but there is definitely a feeling of autumn here in East Tennessee with some of the leaves starting to turn fall colors. The Creative Monday Challenge for this week is to paint a landscape with a high horizon. We usually put the horizon line a little above or below the midpoint of the paper so in this case I move it up even further to create a high horizon and more foreground in the painting. This adds a little drama to the composition and allows you to place your focal point on the horizon.

If you are new to Creative Monday I would love to have you join us. You can read more about it and get info on joining the free Facebook Group here.
