An Angler by Becker von, Adolf
This painting is drawn by Becker von, Adolf named An Angler drawn in the year 1890. The painting shows a guy around his 60's sitting in a large rock, fishing while smoking his pipe. The picture contemplates a calm chill mid-afternoon on a lonely experience. The sky is very still and has a dusky blue color followed by a little cool grey color giving that slight of calm feeling. The painting does not have many bright colors. The painting has a variety of organic shapes like, the old guy, the tree. Horizontal lines draw outs the back ground with the mountains and outline of the water followed by the fishing pole and rocks. This picture implies a smooth, steady texture and since its a painting, it can actually be a smooth texture.
