The Landscapes & Backgrounds Track provides a comprehensive exploration of the role landscapes and backgrounds can play. Techniques like atmospheric perspective, lighting, texture, scale, and space will be addressed through various prompts.

Do the track at your own pace! Taking the time to process the content is important, so we don’t advise putting pressure on yourself to finish the track quickly. Remember to have fun and enjoy the process of learning!
