Hard to Find


From sketches through to final paintings, Geoff Kersey shows how to incorporate linear and arial perspective, how to create depth and distance with light and shade, and how to breath a sense of realism into a picture. Flat, dull landscapes can be changed into vibrant scenes full of life with sunlight and shadows; distance can be enhanced by placing warm colours in the foreground and cool colours in the background; foreground detail and soft background images can lead your eye into a picture. There are many more tricks which can be used to create an illusion of a three dimensional scene. Fields, trees, roads, rivers, bridges, buildings, harbours - whatever the subject you will need to learn about perspective, depth and distance.
