Been a long time since i did any drawings. But....question: I don't recall ever reading anything on aerial perspective when i comes to pencil drawing. Does it apply? I mean do i make background LESS dark, and unimportant things less important (softer) just like painting?
The moment you find yourself mostly satisfied with a painting and think you'll "just quickly" do this or that, that's the moment to stop completely. Take the painting off your easel and put it aside for at least 24 hours, then reassess whether it really needs that tweak.

Hey Pat, I think it applies to all mediums.  ;)  If you look at other professional artists work you see that. But let us see if I am right or not.  :2funny:

Ok Nina.thanks..making things softer in background seems like it would...go hand in hand with lightening the values too.

Correct! Aerial perspective applies to all mediums. Otherwise your drawing is flat as a pancake!  :eek: No depth perception.
Cheers, Val

Yes Val...i finished it ( i hope). Worked on it yesterday and today alot. Old barn in snow.
I sure messed with it so much. The boards on the barn...then you got grassy spots here and there in the snow. It's touch to figure out when it's too much, or not enough.
I still want to finish up that sunrise at jetty (where i fish) yet...by end of next week...then, i'll take photos of that, and the drawing and...the other two paintings.
