Create > Surreal Landscape Perspective

Mm-ve-dali06-lrg

Goal:
Create a fantasy landscape using atmospheric and linear perspective to clearly show depth.

Studio Activity:
  1. Take a landscape photograph and print it out.
  2. Follow the Rule of Thirds for layout and composition and then crop the image.
  3. Make sure it shows depth (foreground - middleground - background).
  4. Make sure there is a focal point.
  5. For Surreal effects, manipulate (scale - juxtaposition - humor).
  6. You may create a collage from which to draw, like the Interior in Perspective assignment.
  7. Create a drawing or painting that manipulates your photo with surrealistic elements.
  8. Clearly show depth using atmospheric and linear perspective (think long shadows)
  9. Fully render forms in full value ranges.
