Add peo­ple or crit­ters

ImagineFX - - In Depth Plein Air Painting -

In other work you might want to add fig­ures first, but in plein air I think it works to mostly stage the scene first be­fore drop­ping peo­ple or an­i­mals in, if they don’t take up too much com­po­si­tional space. Now I can place them in re­ac­tion to the scene. I per­son­ally al­ways like to add peo­ple or area-ap­pro­pri­ate fauna, even if I didn’t di­rectly ob­serve it. Do­ing so adds live­li­ness.
