Artist Tip Of The Month

Achieving Depth

How to create depth in your paintings without using linear perspective:
  1. Create depth with textural changes --- use texture in the foreground or center of interest --- areas without texture recedes into the background.
  2. Chromatic changes --- stronger, clearer colors comes forward --- less intense colors recede into the distance.
  3. Value changes --- values become lighter as they recede. Darker values come forward.
  4. Overlapping shapes --- by overlapping shapes it creates the felling of stepping back into the painting.
  5. Edge changes --- hard edges come forward, soft edges recede.
  6. Color temperature --- warm colors come forward while cool colors recede.
