THE MATHEMATICAL COMPOSITION
A Fine Art painting will be composed around and in a 9 section grid.
Directions will change. Composition will change on and around the grid.
The Focal point will be something the artist generally starts with.
A Focal point is where the artist wants you to START looking at the painting and the rest of the composition will be the journey from the Focal Point.
You may chose a different area to start looking at a painting BUT a Professional Artist will always start with a Focal Point. The place to start 'focusing'. Even a 'Fine Art' portrait painted by Cat Croxford, one of our artists, will have a Fine Art composition.
