Module 3: Composition Tutorial

Composition without Drawing

Basic forms representing containers, fruit, foliage and flowers, are used as templates on a 40x40cm sized canvas.

It is an interactive action that will offer ideas about object sizes, proportions, balance and positioning in order to figure out different composition options. In this composition video tutorial, I am pointing out some aspects to consider when planning your paintings.
