Aims:

  • Ways to Improve the Composition in Landscape Paintings.

  • Creating an illusion of space with in the picture plane by using tones and colour values.

In our previous session we have practised on creating an illusion of space with in the picture plane by just using colour values.


In this particular session, We have started to the session with an activity by practising expressing our ideas onto paper. The main purpose of this exercise to explore, experiment and investigate the landscape themes in more detail by using their visual qualities. The qualities may include simple elements such as lines, colour, texture, tones ,value, space.


Have a look at the different shades of green, blue and other warms colours to create an illusion of space with in the picture plane by using different tones and shades of colours.


Making Method: Use your sketchbook to collect primary ideas of different themes of landscape images, such as mountains, lakes, roads,waterfall, tropical plants, (By doing this you could also enhance your image and make in it more accessible)

Vision about rural, semi-rural, urban, and industrial landscape. Make a list of what could be seen in a landscape drawing such as trees, sunset, bushes, rivers, houses, animals, hills, clouds, cranes, horizon, sandy beaches, rails, roads, etc.


Staring with Space:


Exercise 1: I asked the participants use their sketchbook to collect some of the different elements such as fields, mountains, trees, bushes etc. We have made a list ideas of our favourite colours and natural elements in landscape drawings. We examined what they can see in the foreground, middleground and background. We discussed how things look smaller as they get further away.


We used three strips of paper, on the first stript draw everything they can see way in the distance such as the sun, mountains, oceans etc. On the second strip, draw all the things are closer, in the middle ground such as trees, roads. On the third piece of paper, what they can see on the foreground; bushes, flowers, animals etc. The main aim of this exercise to show as much of the foreground, middleground and background as they could.
