Thank you! :thumbsup:

Brilliant article - I like his examples (although they are a bit small). I almost envy his students..

As the person who posted that link over at Renderosity, I feel it only fair to point out that I originally found it here, in the "Art Discussion" forum!

I found it to be a useful site which reminded me of much that I had learned during my years of landscape photography. I would also recommend the tutorial on "light", which contains a wealth of information on this vital, although often overlooked, aspect of image creation.

itīs a nice article and great read for sure, but i also feel that as artists/designers we also need to be able to break rules from time to time to create great art or the right composition for the subject.

i mean the article went into my favīs right away but if we would never create a straight road or object, an x shaped object or something similar then in the end the end result would suffer in the long run, art needs diversity and people that sometimes break the rules for the sake of creating a better piece or more interesting, breaking outside of the box isnt always bad so dont forget that.

other then that, nice find.

So true; I've never had any formal art training (gasp), so the article provided me with valuable insight into the more, ehh, generic techniques of landscape painting - a great thing for me. I don't intend to become a forerunner of art, but you have a really good point and I'll bear it in mind. Thanks.

Thank you so much Meddo,

It's been 30 years since my last art class and primer was badly needed. Great site:thumbsup:
