 This lesson is S39L4, Gauging Size of the CREATING DISTANCE Series.   Using as her reference a herd of cows in a field, Dianne shows us how to use a fool-proof method for relating sizes in order to show how far in the distance each image is as compared to those closer to us.

As images move into a distance their characteristics gradually change.  We will see value contrasts decreasing from strong to close, hues might gently merge from one to another, intensities often become more neutral, textures can progressively disappear, and sizes will steadily become smaller.
We can create distance in our paintings by creating these changes in our images.  The four lessons in this series guide us in that direction.

 Rather than becoming refined paintings, all these lessons are studies, each showing a different approach for using a composing principle.  Dianne’s approach to teaching is to show you ways to think about making choices and decisions so that you can work these into your own unique approach to painting.

With every brushstroke we make, we are composing.  Just as with any creation, we begin with a structure, then as the art work begins we place shapes and colors according the concept with which we are working.  But the time comes when we move to a different level of thinking and decision-making–that moment when our intention becomes to bring clarity and resolution to the work.

Among Dianne’s passions about painting and teaching painting is how composing principles can expand creative freedom if the artist transcends the “rule” idea and instead, transforms the principle into a tool that opens creative doors.
