Today I wanted to share few words about composition in picture below. I created this one fairly quick, as an coloring exercise after little walk at Warsaw and meeting Mieszko, the oldest oak around.
Trees used to burst inspirations in me. Tangled branches and odd shapes bring to mind all strange creatures and stories. I have special worship towards roots and rocks around.
In this picture, I wanted to show this really charismatic tree and try somehow strange composition with displaced focal points. I always liked how Paul Bonner was placing his dwarves at the edge of canvas in very strange places and, by the same token, using all area available for his story.
So the point is – next time you see a tree, or rock, try strange compositions.
But seriously, be brave and move beyond all standards. Today art is full of standards.
Cheers and look at other trees!
