Transcript of Atmospheric Perspective

Atmospheric perspective describes the effect the atmosphere has on the appearance of an object as it is viewed from a distance.
As the distance between the object and the viewer increases, the colors of the objects become less saturated and shift towards grey.
Colors become desaturated.
Details become less distinct.
Objects appear smaller.
You can create atmospheric perspective by drawing larger objects in the foreground and smaller objects in the background.
Overlapping objects create
the illusion of one being behind the other.
Objects clustered together seem farther away, while objects that are spaced apart seem closer to the viewer.
Objects in the foreground maintain details while objects in the distance become blurry.
Objects in the foreground maintain full saturation of color while objects in the distance become lighter and greyer.
Your task is to create a landscape, from a photo or your imagination, that demonstrates atmospheric perspective. Your goal is for space and objects to recede realistically. The challenge is that you may only use primary colors plus white to create all other colors.
To achieve this you will have to adjust the saturation of color, the clarity of detail, and the scale and spacing of your objects to create depth.
