Spanish term or phrase: los segundos, terceros y cuartos planos
Terms to refer to an intermediate space in drawing or painting:

Por ejemplo, las instrucciones de Leonardo da Vinci (2) para pintar una batalla revelan que Leonardo sí propone el desenfoque. Desenfoca el fondo. Y advierte que, a medida que lo que sucede se aleja del punto de vista, cada vez se ve menos, en términos de foco. Porque dice que el polvo mismo que se levanta en la batalla impide ver los segundos, terceros y cuartos planos.

I found some hits on the internet for "second, third, and fourth grounds" but I am not sure... second, third, and fourth planes"?

Thanks
