Lesson 14- Putting Figures in a Landscape

The first part of this problem is to search for shapes that will read as figures which are not posed.

The next part of the problem is to place the figures in a simple scene so that they appear to be receding in space. People are no different than fence posts in terms of perspective. They will decrease in size and fit into a cone formed from a reference figure and guide lines to a randomly chosen vanishing point.

It's fun to make up a simple scene, a beach or golf course or plaza, and add in several figures shapes.

Here are a few which were done in a short class session.

Judy had fun with figure shapes and put in a background afterwards.

Marjorie's bold green men could be the beginning of an abstract.

Fran's figures tied in nicely with the foreground.
