Ferdinand Keller - German


 Italian Landscape












This may be a marine scene, or the shore of a lake. Dark conifers provide a strong tonal contrast to the white clouds and foam.

Hi Nat. Me too. When I first attempted landscapes in oils I was always afraid of using strong tonal contrasts. Now I look for them first in a scene - easier in places like Australia or the Mediterranean with their bright sunlight and shadow, than in the Grey UK.
