Run for the hills!

Hey Peeps :)


Ok, by now you will have seen the new Challenge (Atmospheric Perspective) over at Make it Colourful, and you feel like you want to run for the hills. Am I right?


Let me tell you, there is no need. Sure, it gets you thinking, but it's not so bad. I strongly advise you to go online and find images of landscapes, look at the way the colours change, keep referring to your image as you colour, and you'll be done before you know it.

I coloured my image from front to back. I was more comfortable colouring the things at the front of the scene, and it helped me work out what colours to use as I moved further back. But, there is no right or wrong way, do what is comfortable for you, and have fun with it...
