VERTICAL 2.


Cradle Mountain National Park is one of the jewels in the crown of Tasmania. Its scenery is at times breath-taking and its Overland walking track is world famous.

In today’s featured drawing of Lake Lilla, you can just see the top of Cradle Mountain to the left in the background.

This is another example of where a vertical format adds depth and perspective to a composition.

The bottom of the drawing is quite ‘close’ to the viewer, while the background looks to be a long way back.

Follow the line of foam starting at the bottom left of the drawing.

The use of illusion in art is quite fascinating.
