Aerial Perspective

The tones and colors of things in the distance cannot be the same tones and colors as
those same things in the foreground. Aerial Perspective is an effect that we get by lightening the tone and diminishing the color of things that are farther away from your point of view.

To help you recognize how different the tones and colors of foreground things and distant things are . . . look at a place of a subject in the foreground, which means the up-and-down plane of a barn or a tree, and actually paint a spot of that tone in the foreground of your canvas. Now, look at something in the distance that is also up and down, such as a mountain, and paint a spot of that tone in the upper part of the canvas.

These two tones will act as the control for all the colors from far to near and improve the appearance of aerial perspective.

Some of us hate to even think about perspective, but when you are painting outdoors, it is so much easier if you have this reference. We all will be thinking about painting outdoors now that the good weather is coming. Hope this tip helps with your Aerial Perspective.

We Need You!

Here on the web site there isn't much to read, so far all we've had up on the site has been related to the monthly meetings and the Arts Festival.

Well, it's time to change that!

If you attended the Second Annual Dighton Arts Festival and took pictures, we'd love to put them on the website. If you have the pictures on your computer, please send them to me at webmaster@dightonart.org and I'll post them to the website. If you don't have digital copies of your pictures, bring your prints to the next meeting along with a self-addressed stamped envelope and I will scan and return them to you.

Call for Articles!

Ever think of writing a how-to article? Have a favorite place that inspires you? Well, we want you to write about it! If you are interested, just pick a topic and write about it. When your article is finished, all you have to do is email it to me and I will post it on the website. Here's your big change to become published :)

Here's a list of subjects that is by no means complete:

  • Technique in a medium - photography, painting, sculpting or some
    other medium

  • Inspiration - a place, a song, a person, anything)
  • Resources - places to shop, web sites, stores
  • Book review
  • Favorite artist

Thanks and we all look forward to your contribution!
