Zeroing in on your Composition


In this lesson, I’ll take you through several progression steps of a pastel painting that originated from a tiny portion of my original reference photo. I’ll also discuss what to look for when zeroing in on a much more simplified composition and how to get it blocked in.

About this Lesson:

A common tendency for artists is to include too much in a painting composition. We often become attached to several different areas of the landscape shown in our reference photo and end up including it all, resulting in a weakened composition.

How it Works:

Painting the Poetic Landscape monthly lessons give you a unique opportunity to study (virtually) with Barbara Jaenicke.  Purchase access to the lesson and you will be provided with a downloadable PDF with a lesson written by Barbara.

After completing the exercise you can upload your painting and within 10 days (often less!) you’ll receive a personalized review of your painting from Barbara.
