Composition
  • Refers to the placement of elements on the picture plane. Some artists do this by instinct, others plan thoroughly, but every element should be placed for a reason.
  • Every ingredient – size, tone, texture, form, spacing, colour, etc. affects our understanding of an artwork.

One way to help find interesting images is to look at things differently by using a view finder.

A view finder simply frames images so interesting compositions can be discovered.

Tip #3

Have objects go off the page in at least two or three places.

slide13

Tip #4:

Use repetition. Repeat colours, lines, shapes, and tones so your eye stays on the page longer and interest is generated.

slide15

Tip #5

Change the horizon. Choose an unusual viewpoint.

Look Up!

Look Down!

Look close or far!

Be different. Do the unexpected!

slide25

The rule of thirds tells us not to place the centre of interest in the middle of the page. Instead divide the page into thirds.

Natural focal points occur where the lines of thirds intersect.

slide31

Artwork will be more interesting if you have a pattern of different values within it.

  • If you are not sure if you have enough variety of value, squint at your work. You should be able to detect a pattern of lights and darks.

Some ways to test your work…
  • Does it still look good when you turn it upside or sideways?
  • Look at it from different distances. Have someone hold it farther away.
  • Do the squint test. Does your work have a pattern of lights and darks when you squint at it?

Don’t forget that it is okay to break the rules too!

Some of the best artworks break one or all of theses rules!!
