Class Description

Who does not like the effect mountains have on one! That lovely fresh air away from the hustle and bustle of the city; the quietness in general and to listen to the wind rustling in the trees. We need to stand or sit alongside a stream and just absorb the cacophony of sounds as the water rushes past – especially over the rocks and the rapids.

In this class you will learn:

1.  How to add the clouds
2.  How to modify the mountains to suit
3.  How to show colour perspective
4.  How to make the rapids more appealing
5.  and more …

The learnee is guided through the steps in creating this stunning landscape. Mr Clark starts with the basic colors and mixes all the required shades as he explains how to obtain them. Explanation is given about how to achieve depth, for example making a tree that is close higher than the mountains in the background will add relative distance between the two objects. All in all, a lot of different textures to experiment with in this class, water, rocks, forest, clouds etc.

The quality could be improved by re-recording the soundtrack because once in a while some noise comes in.
