How To Create Distance

Cool colours recede, warm colours advance. A warm colour next to an even warmer colour will itself appear to recede in comparison.

Items in the distance are often hazy or fuzzy. Items in the foreground are usually crisp edged and more detailed.

More rich, vibrant colours also seem to advance with muted, duller colours appearing in the distance.

Dee Credaro’s painting below shows rich, warmer colours in the foreground with more detail, and cooler lighter colours in the background to portray distance.
