Create Perfect Paintings
As a painter, your two main objectives are to draw the viewer to your work and to sustain their attention long enough to create a meaningful viewing experience. The success of both of these goals revolves around the quality of visual choreography inherent in your art. This solution-based guide offers ways to identify and overcome the common problems faced by all painters in every medium. To create the perfect painting, analysis and editing are critical. This book shows how to push your work to the next level by strengthening your perception, technical skill and visual thinking. Exercises and examples show how to critique your own creations and then evaluate them step by step for further improvement. You will compare illustrations and learn to identify artistic choices--from negative space and color ratio to controlling eye movement, depth and contrast--to help you use them to the best effect in your work.
