Space: Landscape Painting
Think like an artist: Space
Throughout art history, artists have used the genre of landscape to explore the depiction of space and light. In this project, you create a landscape painting with special focus on foreground, middle-ground, and background, and how atmospheric perspective works with tonality to create the illusion of depth within a two-dimensional surface.
Get creative with design in class
The first step in this project is to develop a landscape painting using Sketchbook Express. To accomplish this, you replicate the process of creating a landscape painting. After completing the exercise, you are encouraged to create a landscape painting of your own. Create a painting that has a point of interest in each plane of the picture. Use different color temperatures and experimenting with positive and negative spaces to direct the eye towards different focal points.
