Racehorses passing The Black Bull, Middleham.
Pete’s Paintings from Photos. Post No 2 ARTISTIC COMPOSITION.

Hi Everyone. Looking this up on the web, there are several definitions. Slightly altered I choose :- Place the main point(s) of interest (focal points) of a WORK of ART harmoniously in relation to EACH OTHER and to the PICTURE as a WHOLE.

Usually this has meant using the RULE of THIRDS, which divides the picture HORIZONTALLY and VERTICALLY into three. Using MAINLY the outer lines, place the most important elements OFF CENTRE.

These rules can obviously be irrelevant for example single portraits or elements, modern art, etc.etc.

In Post No 3, I will explain my thoughts on the content and COMPOSITION of this WORK.So just draw or paint whatever is of interest and ENJOY the experience.
