Depth and Line In mountain ranges

This gallery focuses on the theme of depth and line in mountain ranges.In particular the focus is on the shape that is iconic of mountain ranges. This gallery contains works of many different colors and textures yet each has this common theme of mountains that is defined by the lines used and how depth is created by the artist.

The artist used horizontal and vertical lines to create height and depth in this painting. By using the pattern of zig zaging horizontal lines back and forth all the way to the peak of the mountain the artist adds depth and height. The artist adds height with the use of vertical lines on the sides of the mountains.
This painting of Mt. Jefferson uses horizontal lines to create height and width to show the shape and size of the mountain. There are several layers of mountains which seems to add depth and add to the size of the mountain in the far ground. The artist uses line to show detail in the foreground, which adds to the overall depth of the work.
This painting uses a pattern of horizontal and vertical lines, which are spaced apart in a way to create height and depth. This pattern takes shape to resemble mountains as it is layered. The use of these lines clearly marks the peaks and valleys of each mountain. The lines also zig zag which creates a larger depth the the work.
In this black and white painting the artist uses horizontal lines to create depth and width. By varying the width of space between the lines you can clearly make out peaks and valleys in the painting. The angles of the lines show the steepness of the mountains. A butterfly is added for depth to even further emphasize the size of the background mountains.
In this painting the artist shows a cliff in the foreground with mountains in the background. With the use of horizontal and vertical lines the artist shows great detail in the cliff face and less in the rolling hills. This method adds to the depth of the painting by allowing for less visual information of the mountains that are far away.
In this painting the artist uses many horizontal lines to show different lighting as well as give shape and texture to the mountains. With vertical lines the artist shows the alluvial fans of the mountain which also gives the viewer a since of depth. We see a goat in the foreground, which also adds to the viewers since of depth.
The artist of this painting uses angled lines to create triangles that show the height of the mountain. By layering these lines the artist creates the mountain range and adds depth to the artwork. The detail in the trees of the foreground also add to the depth of the overall painting.
This painting is less realistic in that you may not recognize strait away that what you are looking at is a mountain. After looking at the title you can easily see the resemblance. The artist used lines to create a triangle and squares that get lighter and lighter as we go up in the painting. The use of the squares in this way seems to add depth and put the bottom of the triangle in the foreground.
This is a more simple drawing of a mountain range and still we get the idea. In this drawing the artist uses the shape of the lines to create the height and depth of the mountain range. Using more lines to show complexity and the darkness of the line to show outline you can easily see distinct peaks and valleys.
In this work the artist uses horizontal lines to create width and height. These horizontal lines create clear peaks and show the size of the mountain. The vertical lines in this painting show height and give more depth to the painting. Using lines in this way gives depth and shape to the mountain.
