Terraces, Terraces As Far As The Eye Can See

I tried to experiment with a mix of Classical Realism, Impressionism and a bit of subliminal expressionism in this acrylic landscape painting of China terraces.

Many Chinese people don’t feel they’ve eaten unless they have had their rice for each meal, breakfast, lunch or dinner, it doesn’t matter. No wonder there are rice terraces in the countryside as far as one can see and beyond.

This painting is a further development of the posting on December 19, 2006. I decided to go back and focus on the landscape in the terraced fields in addition to the water buffalo. The terraces in the distance just keep going up the mountainside. It created an interesting depth of field I tried to capture here.
