Learning Aerial Perspective
I am currently reading a drawing tutorial book by Barrington Barber titled "The Fundamentals of Drawing: A Complete Professional Course for Artists". It's a good thing to have if you're still grasping the basics of drawing.
Anyway, the drawing above is based on one of the lessons in the book. Specifically, a lesson on aerial perspective. Aerial perspective is the idea that the further away an object is, the less details and strength in texture you would give it. Objects further away are also softer and fainter. This is my first time learning about this concept. It seems like a good introduction into landscape drawing.
