Composition and Design

Here's an outline sketch of this week's challenge drawing. Among other things, this challenge involves making choices about design. I rarely, if ever, copy a photo exactly like it is. I use my photos as reference. They are not mindlessly copied from. Here's my revised composition of the June 22nd challenge photo. Look at my exploration drawing from June 25th also. How many things can you name that I have changed from the original photo? This is what is called "artistic license". You must know the basics about composition and design in order to make good choices however. I always cover this subject in my workshops, because it is an important key element to successful art. I'll post my finished drawing with our new challenge photo tomorrow.
