Composition is a very important part of all art making. In abstraction it is part of what pulls the painting together. Allows the painting to " flow".
I have been preparing for a class I am teaching "Next Level Oil and Cold Wax Intensive" (still 2 opening left) Register here.
During the class we will talk about composition. For that I have been challenging myself to try different "composition styles"
Here are 2 examples of cruciform or cross compositions:
1. The light blue divides the picture and draws the eye to each area.
|Evening shade, 6x6", oil and cold wax on panel, $100|
2. A gentler color pallet but still with a cruciform /cross composition.
|5 square, 8x8", oil and cold wax on panel, $160|
