Re: Landscape Composition Rules

Thank you so much for putting together this wonderful article. It gave me so many great ideas to think about. The pictures you added as examples were really a wonderful way to explain the ideas. I've bookmarked this, and I am sure I will refer to it many times.

Re: Landscape Composition Rules

Thank you SO much for this fantastic article!

I'm still very much in the learning stages with my painting efforts, and Composition is something that I've been struggling with - and Knew I was struggling with!

There is far to much in this to point out any particular thing that stands out as "so That's why" more than other things. It has given me a fresh perspective on why some of my paintings simply seemed to "work" better than others though. This is more timely in finding, and more appreciated, than you'll ever know!

Re: Landscape Composition Rules

Great article and lots of help, thanks.

By the way is there a good printable version ?. Kinda hard to sneak that one thru the printer here at work (I do better with a hard copy rather than rereading it off the net).

I did try the posted link and it didn't seem to work.

Thanks.

Re: Landscape Composition Rules

Johannes, you've done a great job of taking down to the essentials whole books on composition and design. Thank you. Having the paintings illustrate the points makes your material even better. I think the sign of a great teacher is in his ability to break down the most complex information into bite-sized pieces for easier consumption. - Diane

Re: Landscape Composition Rules

Johannes, Thank you so much for the info on composition and disign. I am working on a watercolor right now that is just in the drawing stage and I haven't made it look right in my mind yet, so I am going to go over and over your lessons and see if they soak into my head. I have longhorns and calves and so far two men on horses with a stream in the background andtall trees in the distance. Thanks again. Mary

Re: Landscape Composition Rules

I have searched this entire thread and somehow have not been able to find the article that everyone is raving about. Back in 2003 when it was first posted, the link no longer works. Can someone please tell me where I can go to find the article? Or is it no longer available in an article and is now a book, as I've seen referenced?

Diane
