Art Tip File: Change Your Perspective

“I paint with my paper at about a 60-degree angle so that I get a variety of effects as the pigments run down the paper. I always start with the horizon because it sets the values, scale and color temperature for the whole painting. I usually paint the sky last with the painting upside down.” ~ Robin Purcell, from the June 2011 issue of The Artist’s Magazine (Running Water: Four artists reveal their methods for conjuring wondrous landscapes with fluid acrylic and freeflowing watercolor).
