Aaron Dan AHIS 126 March 27, 2007 Essay II The painting I chose was the second image. At the bottom of the painting we see a small cottage built upon rocks, overcast by the jagged, detailed branches of a few trees. This section of the artwork is higher in contrast than the rest, but still is not overbearing with the light-to-dark ratio. Just above that to the left, there is a cliff, decorated with gentle shadowing. The center of the painting is left open and untouched. Another bigger cliff formation emerges in the right side in the back of the middleground. These cliffs are tall and quite steep, but do not show to have very much detail to them, only a few small shrubs and lines to depict the face of the cliff. The rocks seem to disappear into the top of the painting on the right side, having even less detail to them. Finally, in the background there is one more set of rocks sitting on the left of the painting. Although there is a slight amount of shading for a shadowed effect, this is not a very detailed part of the painting. Above this all, there is a poem written on the top left of the artwork where the sky would surely be.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
