Here is a definition for atmospheric perspective according to Rita Gilbert
in Living With Art. " A device for suggesting three-dimensional depth on a
two-dimensional surface. Forms meant to be perceived as distant from the
viewer are blurred, indistinct, and misty." I use images like Albert
Bierstadt's "The Rocky Mountains" and point out how there are sharp, clear
details in the foreground and blurred, muted images and values the further
away things are. Hope this helps. Kathy
