Creating the Illusion of 3D


Michael Ressler

A moment of light and color can unveil the beauty of our common, overlooked outdoor surroundings. These scenes challenge and inspire me to create impressionistic paintings where I strive to create a visual escape, capturing the subtleties of colors on an overcast day or the dramatic sunlight on a peaceful vista. Through my paintings, I provide my collectors with a renewed memory of enjoying our great outdoors.

About the Demonstration

Painters create the illusion of 3D using a combination of 6 techniques. These include overlapping, size (linear perspective), value, color intensity (color perspective), texture/detail, and shading a form. The demo will show each technique, then with audience participation, change a circle into a 3-dimensional sphere. An instructional handout will be supplied.
