Albert Bierstadt’s The Rocky Mountains, Lander’s Peak (1863) is a oil on panel that means it has been created on wood, and the oil in the painting allows easy manipulation for the choice of color in the panting. However, David P. Bradley’s Indian Country Today (1997) is an acrylic on canvas that means it allows for multiple possibilities for color and technique. Bierstadt and Bradley paintings both have similar forms and choices of hue. In Bierstadt painting the use of form allows the viewer to distinguish between the mountains, trees, and the grass within the painting. In addition, the hue in Bierstadt’s painting also allows the viewer to perceive the difference between the grey color of the mountains to the hunter green of the trees and grass.
