DESIGNING A GOOD COMPOSITION – Painting workshop with Susan Wintrop 

Understanding the ‘nuts and bolts’ of good composition will create the dynamic substructure upon which to paint your work. These questions will be answered through exercises and referencing RiverBrinks excellent collection:

When you have an idea for a painting, how much visual information is enough for a good composition?

What is the optimum arrangement of the elements that creates a dynamic composition?

What is a ‘dynamic’ composition?

When is it finished?

How do you paint it to make it resonate with your intention/feeling of the subject?

For this workshop, artist Susan Wintrop will provide materials. Students are only asked to bring in pictures that they are interested in painting, to use in conjunction with the exercises.

All levels of experience welcome.
