This year, however, I thought I would put some to use to talk about types of composition. There are two things I look at when I first see a painting...#1 What type of composition does it use....#2 Where is the focal point. Then usually I try to notice how the painter uses value and then hue to achieve both.
Composition?!? There are different types of composition?!? As a matter of fact, there are! Whether you're an art quilter or a traditional quilter, learning the types of composition will make your life easier when trying to come up with an original piece.
I pulled some days out of the year for some clear examples.
