How do you create a convincing sense of near and far? Artist Tony Windberg will share a range of successful tips and tricks to create the illusion of depth in landscapes. The key is aerial perspective: the way the atmosphere changes tone and colour. Understanding linear perspective - the way things appear smaller with distance - is also crucial for depth, and straightforward techniques will be covered to get the size right! Start with fun exercises to get the most out of your pastels, and then put it all together to make a landscape that will draw viewers in!
