The Psychology of Composition
Salon 7-8:30 (free and open to the public)
Thinking about composition: Psychological & Actual
When thinking about composition, there are other factors to consider besides where to put subject matter. This talk will cover two main areas.
Psychological and actual space. If, in your painting, you wish to “convince" with your imagery, the only reference you have is your own awareness of how you locate yourself in three dimensional space (there is no other reference). Both spatial and psychological will be discussed.
Painting descriptively while thinking abstractly (these are not contradictory factors).
