This week at the McSherryStudio: How to compose a painting
This week in my online classes: How to compose a painting. I’m going to continue with my exploration of past artists’ approaches to composition. Last Thursday, I took a Piet Mondrian still life and made a broadly similar setup. It’s a good exercise and helps to get around that difficulty we often have of deciding what to paint and how to arrange our subjects; Have a look at the Piet Mondrian speedpainting here (and do please subscribe to my Youtube channel when you’re there).
This week, I’ll be looking at, Sir William Nicholson and his silver compositions; Lustrous! A Paul Henryesque seascape from one of my own photographs. Atmospheric! and a Paul Cezanne approach to still life composition. Scrumptious!
We’ll look at how they composed and what each found important to focus on – and how they used colour to such great effect. Register for each class here: https://www.mcsherrystudio.com/online-art-class/
Paint oils, paint small, paint often!
