On the Page Siting Your View

How you position your view on the page will also greatly affect the composition and how effective your drawing is when finished, so take some time to position the image to its best advantage at the start.

Landscapes have high horizons, middle horizons, or low horizons that affect the view and the sense of space.

If you want a sense of deep space, you can move the horizon line higher on your page. There will be more foreground and the horizon will feel farther away.

If you want to concentrate on the sky, move the horizon line down farther on the page, somewhat compressing the foreground, middle ground, and background space.

You can leave it in the middle or anywhere in between that suits you and what you are trying to do with your landscape.
