Painting Composition: How to Design Like a Boss

Marc Anderson

What is the “rule of thirds?” Why can’t my focal point be in the center of the canvas? Why are there so many stupid rules in painting, anyway? Let’s talk about it! The composition of a painting is where you, as the artist,can really play. While there are plenty of rules about composition, we will discuss how and when to break them like the painting mavericks we are. This two-day workshop will include lecture, demonstrations, discussion, and opportunities to ask questions. Students will be assigned homework to create a plein air painting or work from a photo, and will receive critique and feedback from the instructor via video upon completion of the painting.
