Thomas Hill

Thomas Hill was born in England. At the age of 15, his family moved to America and settled in Massachusetts. As a student, he went to the White Mountains of New Hampshire and drew with members of The Hudson River School. He made yearly trips to Yosemite Valley. He died in 1908.
This painting is called "Mount Lafayette in Winter". It shows very good texture and colors. The colors are bright in the places that the author wants us to look at first. This creates a very good pattern. It makes us feel like we are walking through the woods.
The picture has very good composition. It shows all the vital things that you would see in the woods during the winter season. It also has a good balance between nature and landscape. The shows great rhythm. It makes you look at certain things like you would if you were actually walking through the woods. The focus of this painting is the two deer.
