Look at both paintings. Which one has the better composition and use of value. WHY?????


Composition value

COMPOSITION&VALUE

Sock Monkey says, “You MUST remember these when you paint!!!”


Composition

COMPOSITION

  • This is one of the most important things that you can learn as an artist!

  • How YOU select and organize lines, shapes, value, etc….AND how you use the Elements of Art and Principles of Design!


Image format

ImageFormat

  • Portrait or Landscape

  • YOU’RE the artist and YOU choose how you want your painting or drawing to look!!!!!


Points of interest

Points of Interest

  • You need to have one main area of focus that is like you “main idea” that you want the viewer to pay attention to

    • Usually has more detail, more contrast, more shading, etc

    • Should be the most interesting spot in your work


Rules of composition

“Rules” of Composition

  • No BULL’s EYE compositions!!!!!!


Rule of thirds

“Rule of Thirds”

  • By far, the most well-known design rule

  • If you divide the paper into thirds, objects should be places where the ‘thirds’ cross.

  • Again, stay away from putting things into the center of the paper!

  • Avoid placing objects in a row on the page

    • Instead, try placing them up and down on the plane, to avoid monotony.

BAD

GOOD


Rhythm directional lines

Rhythm & Directional Lines

  • A good composition has rhythm…directional lines too!

  • Draw the viewer’s eye around the whole page…


Cropping

*CROPPING*

  • CROPPING! – does it extend beyond the border of your page or does the page enclose the whole image?

    • This is the EASIEST way to make your drawing OR painting unique

RIGHT ON!!!!!!!!

Not so fabulous………


Value

VALUE

  • Is how we get the ILLUSION of three dimensions in a drawing…

  • Creates depth on a flat object


For value we need a light source

For value, we need a light source…


Chiaroscuro value

CHIAROSCURO (= value)

Highlight

Mid-tones

Shadow

Reflected light

Cast shadow


Things to remember

Things to remember..

  • 1 – we don’t use LINES to do value. Let a value be your edge….a dark value up next to a light value produces an EDGE without having to draw a LINE

  • 2 – When you add value to an object, really LOOK at what you see! Make sure there is a GRADUAL change from one value to the next, unless it really looks that way!
