Painters Tip

Pictorial Depth

The simplest and most useful shape in pictorial forms of art is the plane. The surface that we work on is called the picture plane. It is also used as a way to simplify the shapes,masses and points in nature. Planes are used to create stabled and orderly units in painting. Planes vary from showing flat two dimensional shapes to shapes which look like they have volume. Painters use all kinds of shapes to achieve either decorative or realistic effects of space. Even simple intervals and overlapping shapes can make them look more three dimensional. That is why I tell my students to think of a painting as shapes,like puzzle pieces. Adding sizes, colors,values,textures and contrast will make those basic shapes start to come to life.
