ArtistMum: Art Club- Day 5

Today, the art club students made landscape pictures in watercolor. I showed them the color study watercolor landscapes that I did and we talked about some of the things that make a good composition. Where the artist places the horizon line is important because it affects how one looks at the painting. A high horizon lines means that the viewer’s eye is low and there will be less sky. A low horizon line indicates viewing from a higher place. A horizon line in the center divides the painting in half…….half sky, half land, and means the viewer is looking at the scene at eye level.

Just to clarify the word horizon line in art……..it is a line drawn across a picture. This line is essential for communicating the perspective from which a person is observing the picture. The horizon line is always at one’s eye level.

In art, especially painting, aerial perspective refers to the technique of creating an illusion of depth by depicting distant objects as paler, less detailed, and usually bluer than near objects. Objects that are closer are painted darker and more clear.
Here are some photos of the art club students trying out some landscape painting!
