Tips from esteemed painter Robert Sinclair
Written by Tarra Kongsrude, IACC Member
Robert Sinclair, a renowned watercolour painter and teacher for the past 40 years, believes that the tips he shares with his students on how to create more dynamic pictures can also apply to photographers.
He says we can produce more interesting images by creating the illusion of depth using five monocular cues: overlapping, position in field, light and shadow, atmospheric perspective, and figure/ground ambiguity.
