Want to add a feeling of distance in your paintings? We can use the principles of aerial perspective to do that.
Here are the 6 aerial/atmospheric perspective phenomena that occur in nature.
As the distance increases,
- Colors become lighter and closer to sky color
- We see fewer details in objects
- Edges become blurred
- Value Contrast reduces
- Size of objects reduces
- Overall values become lighter
The video shows how I use these in a painting.
So, next time you want to suggest depth or distance in your paintings, use these things to your advantage.
