Landscape challenge

Hello dear artists!

Welcome to Challenge 2!

As long as you follow these three simple tips, you will be able to create lovable landscapes. These tips can be applied to all the subjects, including portraits and still life, which is why painting landscapes is always included in traditional curriculums in all art academies.

Tips to creating beautiful artwork:

  1. Size: the farther the subject, the smaller it is. Easy! right?
  2. Color: the closer the subject, the brighter the color. With distance, objects lose the intensity of their colors and become dull
  3. Edges: the closer the edge to the viewer, the sharper it is; the farther the edge, the softer it is, until it completely disappears (lost edges).

* Extra tip for painting clouds: The lower the clouds are to the horizon line, the smaller they are (it is actually opposite from how objects look like under horizon line :))

This time we will have 3 challenges. You will have 2 weeks to complete each challenge.
