Composition

Page history last edited by Frank Curkovic 9 years, 6 months ago

Artists often plan their work carefully. The planning of their work is called composition. To compose a picture, the artist has to first decide what the focal point, or the centre of the attention will be. This can be anywhere, but is often in the centre.

The head of the most important figure might be at this apex, with less important figures at the bottom angles of the triangle, leading the eye to the focal point. Read more below.
