If you are interested in taking this exploration of "scapes" the next step further, I would recommend comparing the two artists' works, Wayne Theibaud vs. Richard Diebenkorn (one of my favs).

> Greetings Art Educators,
> Here is a wonderful example from Wayne Theibaud that shows my
> philosophy on traditional perspective lessons (They are BORING - why
> bother?). I taught a traditional perspective lesson in 1976 or 1977.
> Never again. I think I hated it more than the students.
> Check out this newer work: "River Intersection"
> If that link is too long (or breaks) - simply go to:
> Scroll down to Closer Look (in middle column) - "Riverscape, From Higher Ground"
> I love the way the viewpoint changes.
> Also see the article "Sweet Home California" - slide show included.
> You will see several "scapes" in the slide show. Many teach Theibaud
> for the desserts - I like his "scapes" so much better.
