Notice how added detail and different values also create a distance between this part of the Temple and the South Rim.

 

You’ll notice that I started this painting with relatively warm colors. It’s one of the three rules in painting, cold over warm; so, cooler colors can only be applied over warmer colors, never the other way around. Secondly, thick over thin. Start to apply paint sparingly at first, add thicker paint later. The third rule is dark over light. I took the liberty to add a fourth rule…the KISS principle…Keep It Simple Stupid!
