Breaking Through by MHandt Breaking Through by MHandt
Oil on canvas
150x100cm
Hommage to Albert Bierstadt's painting "Puget Sound on the Pacific Coast" (1870), again.... I wasn't quite happy with the outcome of my first attempt, so I wanted to try the same idea again. This time I tried to really put the focus on the light and the colors.

I think that this captures the almost fantastical elements that Bierstadt incorporated in his images. Most excellent!

The light is so enchanting, most up lighting piece. The play of the dark and golden light is gorgeous

I thought it was a mattepainting with different part from Bierstadt's paintings and then I read the decription...

Very well deserved DD

Stunning, beautiful, wonderful work. Congratulations!

Bierstadt's work is broader in panoramic scope and offers a greater number of points of interest, but I suspect you may have surpassed your inspiration. I like your painting better!!
