After my Assignment 2 feedback I realised that I hadn’t understood and/or followed some of his advice. Considering each point explicitly at this point seems worthwhile as a completeness check, and to build a “further work” list. Continue reading “Reflection on Tutor feedback”

Depth post linear perspective

The course materials also indicate  that we should consider more modern approaches to the representation of depth. In many ways this concept seems to be driven initially through Cezanne and Cubism. Cezanne used colour to represent depth, rather than using a structured and basically mathematical process. In essence, as objects tend into the background they will tend to look more blue. There are other indicators, such as them being smaller and having less detail. This is shown in Mont Sainte-Victoire: Continue reading “Depth post linear perspective”

Depth before perspective

The course notes indicate that we should undertake a view on perspective over time (p58), first looking at the representation of depth before the formalisation of linear perspective, and then at modern art representations. As part of this research I ran into multiple descriptions of the primary principles of linear perspective. One of the most readable is this:  Continue reading “Depth before perspective”
