Need advice

Postby ArtByBri » Sat Jan 23, 2021 1:12 pm

Hello everyone!
I need some help with this mountain painting I'm doing. I want to add more depth by making the background mountains kinda misty and foggy and then more detailed as the mountains get closer. I'm kinda stuck on what colors to use because I want to keep this painting bright and not too dark. Im also not sure of what type of detail I can add. Should I use darker shades of blue and green for shadowing and detail?? And white for highlights?? If you have any advice of color scheme, overall technique, or what you think would look better I would really appreciate any input you might have!
Thanks!!

You are definitely on the right path here. The mountains in the background are more translucent and are getting bolder in the foreground. The depth is good there. The color scheme is good. No worries about that. Now what you need to do in the foreground is add the fine details. The mountains will have lots of color variation and movement and the closer you get, the more apparent they will be. I recommend you take a look at some of the work of Bob Ross. He was a TV personality/painter, but he did some really good mountain work.
