Compositional Basics

Lynne Ayers suggested we share this Painters’ Keys post because “It’s easy to forget about the basics – a refresher is always good. It emphasises the importance of composition which, to me, was once scary and illusive.  Photography benefits from good composition – composition applies to any art form.”

Read on! There is a second article on the topic.

  1. It is always good to remember the basics. Composition is so important. Having said that, I must comment on what a beautiful painting you have posted, Lynne. I love the mood of it.
