Composition Note – 8 Achieving Movement

(Studying Composition means Learning Painting. There are no other ways to learn painting than understanding composition. I have come to a conclusion that it can be explained through 200 compositional studies. I am planning to post 200 composition studies in the next 300 days) 

When you see the painting as a whole, you will feel it. It will be achieved by connecting everything to everything whether they may be….. shapes, spaces positive or negative, value and color. They have to be repeated, and variation has to be created in them. And you have to find contrast in them. Finally balance, pattern, rhythm, emphasis….everything. If you play all these things properly you feel movement.
