What is composition in artist painting?
I will attempt to address the composition in artist painting question.
That is, the arrangement of the elements, of a subject to compliment the focal points and create a harmonious, inviting place for the viewers eye to rest in. Probably not the best definition in the world, but will do for now.
To achieve all of the above, a good composition should have all or most of the following:
:Primary point of interest
:Area of mystery
:Non-geometric arrangement of elements
There is a lot of personal preference involved in all of this, but lets take a ‘broad brush’ look.
Foreground, Mid-ground and Background:
A figure or two, an animal or three, even a fence line will help. We all know how big these are compared to ourselves.
Non-geometric Arrangement of Elements:
