COMPOSITION: Principles and Best Practices to Improve Your Painting

21 Sep 2021 4:33 PM | Anonymous member

"Good composition is like a suspension bridge--each line adds strength and takes none away." Robert Henri

 

To design a bridge one must know and use timeless proven principles and best practices. To paint a strong painting that transports the viewer from where they stand to where you want them to go, the artist must know and utilize the time-honored principles and best practices of composition. I continue to learn both the fundamentals of good composition and the best ways of using them in my paintings. I am not a master, I am a serious student. And I will teach you what I have learned.

 

This two-hour workshop is a primer for the principles and best practices of composition for two-dimensional, visual art. We will talk mostly about watercolor, but these principles apply to other media such as oil and pastel with a focus on landscape painting. Join us if you want to learn . . .

 

* How to choose and photograph a scene for a strong start

* The four-letter word no one wants to talk about

* Four lines that will improve any composition

* Executing the first, and perhaps most important, line on your paper

* How to use and manipulate both the "Rule of Thirds" and the "Rule of Threes"

* 8 ways to make your center of interest more compelling

* How to improve your painting with a little difference in the sameness

* The value of providing an entrance to your painting

* Examples and samples of classic compositions that have worked for master artists through the ages

* Ways to "fix" a "bad" painting

 

This two-hour workshop is offered Thursday, October 28, 7 to 9 PM, via Zoom. A link will be sent to you after registration and payment. Cost for the on-line workshop is $30.

 

A similar three-hour workshop is scheduled PRIOR TO THIS on September 23 from 1 to 4 PM (Mtn) via Zoom. Please see www.artbylinden.com/workshops
