No single aspect of any painting or drawing is as central to its success as a good composition. Join artist Andrew Denman for an in-depth and practical exploration of this most vital and nuanced of topics. We’ll study the compositions of great paintings, constructively critique our own work, and engage in a variety of drawing exercises designed to hone the compositional eye, including quick still-life studies, sketching outdoors, and more developed studio drawings. Learn what to edit out of your reference material, and how to combine multiple references into a cohesive whole. Discover the rules of composition…and how and when to break them!
