Creating Aerial Perspective

In this lesson, S5L2  Controlling Contrasts, Dianne divides the landscape space into three areas–nearby, in-between and distance.  She demonstrates how the contrasts within a landscape actually gradate from strong to close as things recede into distance.  Within the lesson, Dianne introduces a new way of thinking about aerial perspective.  Rather than depend upon the old, tired nomenclature, she uses a fresher and more meaningful language.The term aerial perspective often causes eyes to glaze over, but when we change that language to controlling contrasts, we’re using words that describe what we are doing and that makes all the difference in our describing distance while painting, especially en plein air.To see examples of Dianne’s work where her intention was controlling contrasts to create a feeling of distance in space, go HERE.  Some other noteworthy artists skillful at doing this are Marc Hanson, Joe Paquet and Marilyn Simandle.
