of blurry mountains

Sunlight, when high on the sky, creates a wide tonal contrast - dark shadows and bright highlights. But even on a bright day, distance or atmospheric perspective affects the tonal value and colours of the objects that are further away than those in the foreground. This is what we have studied in class for our latest plate. Dovi's a quick learner. She have never done any landscape before but she managed to finish this. 

She did the bright noon.

I did the late afternoon while watching her progress.

Here's the homework i gave her last session. The butterfly is so detailed!
