Little Sugar River at Noon by Maxfield Parrish @ VMFA

3 D without the funny glasses

You can see the depth better with the naked eye  than what you see here through the camera lense and computer. If you stand in front of this painting it looks like you’re looking through a window at the scene. The plaque at the museum says that Maxfield Parrish got tired of making figurative paintings and did this painting for his own enjoyment. It talks about  his great drawing techniques , and his way of building up layers of glazes to get this effect. I love this landscape, and I’m inspired to buy some oil paints and try to paint like this. Stay tuned , friends, it will take some practice, but I think I can do it too.
