The physical phenomenon of coloration of more distant objects by the surface layer of air in cold (bluish, blue) tones, to soften their actual color and outlines, which is widely used in landscape architecture.

With the appropriate selection of plants, the depth of space can be illusoryly enhanced. For example, using in the background of a landscape painting a variety of trees with a bluish-green color of foliage, needles or with soft and smooth outlines of crowns.

The opposite effect is achieved when trees with light colored silvery or golden foliage are used.
In the gardens of the Russian Museum, this effect can be observed on the alleys of the Summer Garden.

Enjoy your walks in the gardens of the Russian Museum. The fountains are still in operation and the sculpture is not covered.
