Re: Trees on edge of canvas
Painting trees is a favorite subject of mine for the last 30 years. One of things I learned many years back was to “stay away from the edge’ when painting trees. Trees that run along the edge may cause the viewers eye to flow off the edge of the painting. Many times I have added a branch to lead the viewers eye back into the painting. When adding trees it is always an “odd” number of them 1,3,5,...(e.g. Jack Ham’s “Drawing Scenery” book using the principle of the threes).
