Chances are, it’s the composition that needs work. When laying out your composition, a few things to consider are:
- Where’s the focal point?
- Is there enough variety of forms and sizes?
- Is the perspective accurate?
- Are there any tangents?
Really examine your painting to see what can be improved. If you’re a total beginner and not sure what you’re looking for, stick with me! I give a lot of tips about composition in my weekly lessons.
We have an entire unit on composition in the Creative Circle*, but here’s a quick tip to help train your eye towards more dynamic paintings.
The Creative Circle is our monthly membership group that offers weekly painting lessons, guided tutorials, mindsets, and a tight-knit community of painters who share and support one another. Interested in learning more about this amazing membership? Check it out here.
