Composition and Learning

We are very lucky to have Michael Newberry teaching a class on composition on the Drawing and Sketching Forum on WetCanvas! It is such a treat to have someone of his caliber to give us the benefit of his amazing talent. Composition is something I struggle with so I am hoping to learn a great deal from Michael. Looking at this sketch makes me see I have a lot to learn!!!

I go through phases of learning - times when it I just want to soak up everything and make my artwork more dynamic. This is one of those times.

'Learn as if you were going to live forever. Live as if you were going to die tomorrow.' Mahatma Gandhi

'I am always doing that which I can not do, in order that I may learn how to do it." - Pablo Picasso

'What we have to learn to do, we learn by doing' - Aristotle
