Hi, first time post here for me. Landscape art has never been my strongest, so I decided to practice until I master it. I always have trouble creating a sense of scale with my works. I wanted to know what are some pro tips I can use.
Scale requires less details for the bigger objects. If you can see most of a skyscraper, don't paint the window sashes. Linear and atmospheric perspective apply. Overlapping elements in the composition to make scale obvious and worms eye views also enhance the effect of size.
Thanks! I am going to remember this tips!
People have an innate sense of the size and scale of things like windows, doors, cars, dogs, forks, trees, people, kids, horses, etc. Generally these are called "scale indicators" and their use, in combination with linear and atmospheric perspective as dpaint mentions, go a long way toward developing the sense of scale in an image.
What's good, mein!
