great job again Louisa and Vjah :clap: :clap: :clap:

Louisa what bothers me is the top of the house, there is the same colour on the inside and outside making the top of the house look like it has a hole in it. just change the colour of the inside part to make it darker O0

Love your landscape Luba, well done. 

Now here's mine minus the rocks which I still need to watch.  Unfortunately I lost all my beautiful splattering by having to change my road which had my husband in hysterics, and I hadn't even been drinking! :2funny:

Little bit disappointed with my dull colours, but perhaps I can repaint over when it is dry( that could take weeks with the knifework!). I just can't seem to mix up a nice light green, must go and check what we used for the meadow.

Any suggestions? :thumbdown:? Or  O0. Feeling  :uglystupid2:

Yep that's me :uglystupid2: :uglystupid2:  I have done it again.  Forgot to post!

Thank you Nolan and Mea.
Will try and flatten the slope when I Lighten it up, if that is possible!
Tks Luba, will check that bush!  Am about to go and study yours see if I can see what everyone means, I had no idea where the horizon points were myself, so shall learn from yours!

very nice Luba :clap: :clap: :clap:
The poles leading up to the house just get too short too quickly, so just lengthen then a bit more to get the perspective correct O0

Really lovely work Fiona :clap: :clap: :clap:
just be careful with the angles on the slopes, eg. in the foreground the angles are bit dramatic which makes the road look like it is running between two steep hills. In this painting it doesn't look wrong, but just for the future remember that the more angle you add, the steeper the hill O0

Ms. Fig,  Vjah, and Luba

You all did really nice landscapes.

Fig, I can just hear Nolan saying, wow, checking out that looking-in-effect in those windows.

I have a feeling in my guts that says that my house isn't right. But I don't know, why. Nolan, please don't be gentle with me! I want to learn. The house doesn't sit  right. Everything is fixable. I can overpaint. Please tell me where my mistake is. It's not just the poles. Where is the horizon in my picture? Is it behind the mountains?How do you know where the horizon is when it is hidden behind mountains?In this pic I used the house to determine my horizon as seen in your video.I took the foremost vertical of the house and placed my ruler on the upper and lower end of that line and where they came together was my vanishing point and also my horizon. But what would happen if I didn't have a house in the pic? Please teach me to do it right. I need to know why it looks wrong.
Fig, very nice. I love your house and your tree and your mountains. The bush on the right seems to be a little to big in comparison to the house.

Luba,
I see what you mean.  I am looking hard at your house and think that the house appears slightly curved along the left-side bottom where it meets the ground almost as though it were contoured to the hillside.

Another thing is that the front is more angled at the bottom than at the top.  If you make the bottom of the house just a tiny bit longer on the right side, I think you will have equal angles. (Take this advice with a grain of salt, I nearly flunked geometry in high school.)

Hope those help.

The little house is really so cute and fits the rusticness of the landscape.

You did a great job on this.

Mea,where is my horizon? How do I determine where to put my horizon and where to put my vanishing point. In landscapes you can't always see the horizon because it is hidden behind buildings, mountains,trees. What do I do in such cases.  Do I decide where my horizon is? What if I decide wrong and I put it to low or to high? And what about the vanishing points. where do I put them? If I decide to put them to close,my building will look to steep and awful. There must be a way to do it right. And what about the size of the house? Is it to big or to small? I want it to look right and still be the focal point.Please help me. I need to know the rules for I want to do more landscapes. I want them to look realistic and not childish like this one. :help: :help: :help: :help: :help:

Dear Luba;

As I understand it the horizon line is determined by ones line of site/eye level.  Therefore,
if the foreground hill in front of the house is where the viewer is standing then
I would anticipate the line of site to be about where the grassy hill  on the left and
the small hill on the right meet.  Once you establish the horizon pick one or two points on the
line to establish your vanishing point(s).

I noticed that the windows and the roof lines do not seem have the same
perspective therefore, not in line with the points on the perceived horizon line.

Hopefully!  Nolan will help steer both of us right on this one.

Just a few thoughts.     :painting:

 :wave: My crude attempt to explain.






Black arrow is Horizon Line.
Red arrow and Orange one are the vanishing points.


I usually draw line to mark which are my corners to the vanishing point. As for height, up to you. Once you decided how tall, I relate it back to vanishing point.

Here's a video, I found helpful:

I really like Richard Robinson videos.
