Studio Gallery Intern Art Review

Joyce McCarten’s painting of a landscape is pleasant and serene. It appears to be a relaxing home on a farm surrounded by trees and a beautiful sky. The vast rolling lawn presents lovely values of green and the mixture of light blue blends in the sky create wispy clouds. The painting is the ultimate vision of a picturesque countryside. McCarten makes the viewer feel calm and enticed by the carefree nature of the image. The large tree in the front brings rhythm and movement to the piece by drawing the viewer’s eye to the focus of the image. The overall quality of the painting is excellent; it consists of careful brushstrokes and a fine color palette.
