Tip #4 Proper perspective
Nothing says more "come along, come on, follow this road" than a pathway/back alley which opens up at the bottom of the painting. But then again, even if you love to get away with "crazy bold colours" or all kinds of objects (garbage bins, garages, trailers, meandering marauders) along that road, you still have to respect one rule: the rule of perspective. With progressively decreasing objects' size lining the road and a single point of perspective (lines pointing to one point in the distance). Otherwise, if it's all wrong, one feels light headed looking at the painting or perhaps even slightly nauseated, not knowing for sure what's wrong, oh-my-let's-look-at-something-else-instead kind of feeling. so draw some lines if needed and keep to the overall directives. Ok the road may go up and down a little but you get the idea. You may now enter...
