Composition Class: Symmetry & Asymmetry was Great!
November 15, 2021
I had a great time on Saturday teaching the second class in my series of live online classes all about composition.
We focused on symmetry and asymmetry and the final class assignment was to create a concurrent series of 3-4 works of art using the knowledge you gained in class.
Here is the final version of my series of 4 pieces:
They're all based on the same basic design. Working in a concurrent series is a great way to let go of perfectionism, get faster at making art, try new things, and end indecision. If you're interested in working in a concurrent series (as opposed to a serial series), it's as easy and grabbing 3-4 substrates and working on them all at the same time! Seriously. Just line them up and have some fun! I did make an instructional video years ago on the topic. This is a promo for it:
You can still buy a DVD HERE.
And here's a closer look at each of the pieces:
Monthly Members can watch the real time video of this one moving from basic design to finished piece of art. I posted a 2 minute and 30 second long fast forward version on my YouTube channel.
By the way, I think the piece above should actually be rotated 180º, but I wanted to keep the orientation consistent for the blog so that you could easily see how all the underlying designs are the same.
If you're intrigued by this post and interested in learning more about composition, in having the language to talk about your art, in understanding why you're not getting the results you want, in discovering your personal style, check out Design Boot Camp.
Class begins January 24, 2022. Learn more HERE. More than half the seats in Boot Camp: Level 2 have already been claimed! There's a reason that Design Boot Camp students come back for more. :)
Thanks for stopping by!
