Pittsburgh and Overlap

Today’s landscape is a 5″x7″ colored pencil of a detail of the view from downtown Pittsburgh’s Point State Park where the Allegheny and Monongahela Rivers come together to make the Ohio River. This landscape is looking down the Ohio.

And, this is today’s “sculpture sketch.” I experimented with different overlapping shapes. If you look at the landscape, you will see that overlap is one of the primary means of representing the distances of objects from the viewer.
