9th exercise in digital painting

We have seen in the 8th exercise that: The artist works on a flat space of two dimensions (a screen in digital painting), but, it must help his viewers to conceive in the drawn image, a third dimension.
The viewer must easily distinguish the near object and the object away, the shots of the image that succeed to the deepest distance, the 3D dances of the elements, the distances, the intersection and the overlap of the elements.
It is giving the painting its depth.

To create the depth, the artist uses at least 2 techniques at the same time: lights and movements.


Dear friends, here is the second technique:

B) Movements:

It is necessary to give to the viewer of the artistic painting, the sensation of being able to « enter » there. This sensation results from the conception-in the picture of painting-of the plans which succeed each other, and of the space which moves away.
The artist can create this sensation with at least 2 movements:

a) Overlaying plans:

The lines and objects that never intersect, in a picture of painting, remain for the viewer, on the same plane and even spatial level.The lines and objects that never intersect, in a picture of painting, remain for the viewer, on the same plane and even spatial level. These are the points of intersection which indicate to our brains which element is closer or farther in relation to the other.
Compare, my friends, images A1 and A2. One can distinguish well in the 2, three levels (plans):

In A3, you can already design a depth of this image. It is a depth that results from the 3 planes of overlap + the depths of each element (created by light):

Profondeur A3

To give more depth to this image, we add a background plane that receives the shadows of the elements closest to us. In this image (A4), our youx move through 4 shots to the far background:

Profondeur A4

b) La perspective:

Perspective is the part of the physical science of drawing, which teaches, to represent on a plane surface, the objects, as they appear to our sight.
The artist uses perspective to give the impression of proximity or distance to his objects, it is the impression of space.

All the lines – actually parallel – that limit an object, get caught in the painting – and head towards a vanishing point in the horizon, located on the horizon line.

Aussi, « The farther away objects are, the more they lose their color, the more their forms become indeterminate, for then the contrasts of light and shadow fade, » said the German philosopher Hegel.

My dear friends, notice this picture (B1):

Profondeur B1

Why are you looking at an object, moving and moving away from the infinite?

* Its 1st part blur (left) ensures the movement and the speed of this object.
* Part 2 indicates its direction.
* The 3rd part (where it becomes small dots) gives us censation, that it is too far in the horizon.

In image B 2, you can clearly see the role of the background plane and the superposition, to ensure the great emotional professor to this painting:

Profondeur B2

To complete this exercise; I invite you, dear friends, to look at this piece of my 72th creation of painting (To the infinite). Notice the techniques:

  1. Depth, lights and movement makes a beautiful painting! Thanks for bringing the elements together for me. I love to learn the basics of your paintings! Thank you. 🎶 Christine
