Here is a visual reminder system for the visually oriented artist, based on knowledge and experience passed down through the ages. Styles may have changed, but advice about design and composition is still valid, applicable in any medium and used today.
I have taken these tried and true principles, wrapped them into neat bundles and due to my graphic design background, designed an instantly recognizable visual symbol for each. The result? The Building Blocks of Painting, a system which helps to keeps you on track while painting and analyzes problems in existing work.
These visual reminders are not “rules” but guidelines based on the experience of generations of masters in every painting medium and style. Paintings by John Singer Sargent, Mary Cassatt, John Pike, Edgar A. Whitney and artists Ron Ranson, Judi Wagner, Frank Webb, Milford Zornes and others, show how these principles are applied.
