5 Depth and perspective
Portraying battle scenes takes a certain amount of skill. The large-scale environment and numerous small figures make it difficult to give the painting a sense of depth. My solution is to select some of the main structures on the ice wall and add fog to make them stand out and look three-dimensional. Elements placed closer to the viewer should be larger and well-defined; those objects further away should be smaller and less detailed. It’s common sense stuff that should help you correctly define multiple elements in a large-scale composition.
