REMEMBER ATMOSPHERIC PERSPECTIVE
- Lights are lighter near you and get darker as they recede to the horizon.
- Darks are darker nearer to you and get lighter as they recede to the horizon.
- This will give you depth in your painting.
Value manipulation for your focal point is always adjusted to your composition. Never work in one area or spot too long, moving around the painting so it comes to a completion which is strong not spotty.
