Composition – the Foundation of Good painting.
Composition is understanding how to compose a piece of artwork. It is one of our most valuable tools and understanding composition gives the artist an idea of how to plan and design a painting. The modules below will introduce you to composition and then how it is used in Landscape, portraiture, still life, and animal portraiture.
INTRODUCTION TO COMPOSITION
ABOUT PHOTOGRAPHY AND HOW WE USE IT
The first videos in Composition Training are covering how to develop good habits and approaches to composition and that includes the use of Photography. Working from photographs and learning how to take good photographs with an eye to composition are important issues to most artists. Learning how I use photography is the subject of one video and learning how to spot a good position to capture a worthwhile composition in the landscape/ townscape etc is also part of the journey.
