Painting plough lines....

....or any lines that start in the foreground and meet at one point in the distance.

like this:



just put your finger on the painting at the point you want the lines to meet...


keeping your finger on the spot helps guide you...


I did this short video
- albeit trying to video around the camera tripod...not easy -

but hope you get the idea...

    1. Nice tip and video, I remember as a teenager my dad teaching me this trick - it was the first time he had me try painting and i remember doing a Robert Woods fall scene....and then I didn't pick up a pencil or brush again until i was in my 50's. I often wonder what happened to that painting i did.

    2. That's a nice memory to have even if you no longer have the picture :-)
