*“Wind break” is about reducing the landscape down to its barest essentials, so that the focus is on the hills, the trees and their shadows.
The trees are overlapped to give the impression that there are more trees than there actually are. The reason I made them seem to float above the ground is because these types of trees are not indigenous to the surrounding landscape. They don’t really belong.
The hills themselves are smooth and bereft of incidental details, reminiscent of the drought affected grasslands commonly found in pastoral farmlands.

    Super, super stunning art!! Love the simple lines and tones of the landscape. Also like the floating trees and your comment that they are not indigenous. Congrads on making the Home Page.
