So I'm trying to stay fresh by doing some different exercises. This one is working with composition and page depth by creating small thumbnail backgrounds using a range of ten values.
Naturally in life as things get further from us, they tend to get lighter because were looking through more of the atmosphere. The idea with this exercise is every time you add a layer thats further into the page it is a lighter value. That combined with the overlapping of multiple layers creates the illusion of depth.
Some work better than others, but overall I had a good time doing these!
