    {800px-Zentralperspektive_zeichnen.png} 7 ways to achieve the Illusion of depth
    What is the illusion of depth? It is an illusion that takes place upon a flat, 2 dimensional plane, a picture plane for art purposes. The illusion is skill based in most cases. It is also a mechanical device. Of course like any good artist (Dali) It can be messed with, bend, distorted, pushed to extremes to obtain those desired effects (MC Escher).
    {Escher_Balcony.jpg}Depth can be shallow or deep. It can also be a narrow field of vision or panoramic.

    Giotto, the Lamentation
    Giotto was one of the first in 1300's Italy. this was Pre- Renaissance in Western Europe. He worked with over lapping, bending and fail emotions. Look also at the shading, the folds of the fabrics. Then there is the background where objects tend to get smaller. Giotto was a Shepards son or a Blacksmith's son, a man of good standing most likely in Florence and about 10 to 12 when he was discovered drawing by a Master Cimabue. His father was paid and his work at as this maste'rs apprentice began in Tuscany. Giotto was soon teaching the others his Techniques. Besides being a painter Giotto succeeded as an architect.
    From Wikipedia-
    "Vasari recounts a number of such stories about Giotto's skill as a young artist. He tells of one occasion when Cimabue was absent from the workshop, and Giotto painted a remarkably-lifelike fly on a face in a painting of Cimabue. When Cimabue returned, he tried several times to brush the fly off."

    besides tinting and shading there is the use of complements for shadow.

    #3 size and scale-egyptian- The largest is the most important. The smallest well, that would be the opposite of the most important.

    Dali used perspective to the extreme. This is an example of 2 point for all intents and purposes.

    The higher things are placed in the picture plane, the farther away they appear to be.
    The further down on the picture Plane, the closer they seem.
