the perspective of a landscape

Robert Broekhuis, 2004-2006, oil on canvas, 92x162 cm

In this study, I wanted to see the effect of changing the rules of perspective. What is in the distance is big ( the tree), and what is close is small ( the line with the tree and the shape of a house). Also the sky is dark red and the color in the front is blue as the sky. So it is also a play with the perspective effect of color: warm colors seem closer than cool colors.
