So how do we create a successful landscape?
1) A HORIZON LINE
2) A FOREGROUND
The 4 Things you must always include are;
3) A MIDDLE GROUND
4) A BACKGROUND
HORIZON LINE:
the line where the land (or sea) seems to meet the sky
Drawing Tip:
The horizon line is usually located in the middle of your paper!
FOREGROUND:
the area in the front of an image, the closest part to the viewer.
Drawing Tip:
The foreground is located at the bottom of your page.
There is more detail in the foreground!
MIDDLE & BACKGROUND:
These are located right where they sound!
Drawing Tip:
Details disappear into the background!
