Landscape with saint john on patmos- Nicholas Poussin

Nicholas Poussin
Landscape with saint john on Patmos
Oil on Canvas

I chose this painting for vairous reasons but mainly the landscape. I really like the way the cyprus trees were painted by pussin, along with the temples and rolling hills of what seems to be somwhere in the mediterrainian such as greece. I love the way the shadows reflect off the clouds as well. Saint john seems to be quite relaxed in this painting, giving the painting over all a very relaxed aura.
