The saturation of the object colors also diminishes; the objects color move towards resembling the color of the background, which is mostly light blue.
The image illustrates Ariel perspective in various ways. The size of the trees (objects) becomes smaller with increase in distance.

The vanishing point in the painting is located near the middle of horizontal line. The vanishing point represents the location where parallel lines that are directed towards horizontal line seem to meet in the distance. Orthogonal lines represents visual rays which enables viewers eyes to see points around edges to vanishing point. These lines are used in the painting to align edges of the hills or ridges.
