Cathy Carey discusses how to create the stages of depth in your paintings that you see when looking at a landscape in real life. She explains how to use temperature, saturation, and value to create depth by understanding that warm colors are closest to you, then cool colors, then neutralized colors, and finally a misty color.

Originally from the east coast, Carey now calls Escondido her home where she has her studio. Her paintings have won numerous awards in juried shows and have been in galleries in Virginia and California. She has taught several courses on color theory including one at The Art Institute, San Diego. Find out more about Carey's paintings and teaching on her website: Cathy Carey Art Studio
