  • Aerial Perspective

    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,

  • Grisaille

    In the Grisaille layer of painting, the artist is concerned only about getting the values right. It is easier to achieve that when you paint with just one color.  As we know, getting the value right is very important for showing the form. Value is the parameter which gives the feel of the 3rd dimension to a 2D painting.
