The composition should be simple, and it should be about one thing, or concept. A deft artist can make even the most mundane subject interesting.
- When in doubt, keep it simple. Less is more.
- Take time to plan out your composition.
- interesting renderings have a harmonious balance of opposites, such as cool and warm, dark and light, thick and thin textures, detail and ambiguity, and hard and soft edges.
- The unequal treatment of these elements is pleasing to our senses.
Seek an interesting flow of eye movement - avoid a static composition.
Great compositions don’t just happen by accident. They take planning, patience, and a knowledge of all the visual elements at your disposal.
