This workshop is designed to explore ways to create the illusion of depth in a landscape. Atmospheric (aerial) perspective softens the mid and background elements of the composition, making detail less visible. Aerial perspective also has an effect on color and value as they recede into the distance. We will explore the possibility of placing small figures, in scale, in the landscape using a simple spatial (linear) perspective method. Tips on desert color and mixing colors like sand, desert greens and the beautiful deep blue skies of New Mexico will be part of the demonstrations.
Each morning there will be a demonstration of some aspect of the landscape which incorporate these simple concepts of perspective. After the demonstration there will be plenty of time to paint. Marie will be available throughout the day for individual help and problem solving. Workshop participants may paint along with Marie as she develops her painting or they may work from their own sketches and photos to develop a landscape with “depth”.
At the end of the workshop we will critique and exhibit the paintings produced.
