Atmospheric Perspective

In 8th grade we are focusing on how to portray space in our artwork. We discussed how using atmospheric perspective can help portray a foreground, middle ground and background can help show space in your drawings and paintings. The examples the students were given are below. Please see the change in value and detail going from the foreground to the middle ground. The objects that are closer are darker in color and have more details. The objects get lighter in color as they fade into the background.
