Create compelling paintings by mastering compositional techniques While happy accidents may occasionally contribute to producing strong, eye-catching paintings, conscious painting is more important. According to author Frank Webb, "Composition is more important than fact, technique, or subject." To create compelling, expressive works, you must make the composition the foundation of your plan. This book provides example-by-example demonstrations of how you can achieve this. The works of 24 professional artists included in this book give you an over-the-shoulder look at how to apply composition techniques. Armed with this information, you can paint a powerful picture and--just as importantly--analyze and improve a work that has gone wrong. "Strengthen Your Paintings with Dynamic Composition" is an indispensable addition to the artist's library that you will read and re-read. Webb's memorable instruction will guide the beginner through composition challenges and serve as a reference for the more experienced painter. Frank Webb, a professional artist since 1947, is a Dolphin Fellow of the American Watercolor Society, which he has represented in international exhibitions in Canada, New York, England, Scotland, and Mexico City. A guest instructor in all 50 states, juror, and lecturer, Webb has received over 110 major medals and awards from national competitions, including six from the American Watercolor Society. Collectors of Webb's paintings include National Taiwan Arts Education Center, Baylor University, Palmer Museum of Art at Penn State University, Portland Museum of Art, and South Arkansas Arts Center, to name a few.Webb is featured in "Who's Who in American Art" and "Who's Who in the East," and he is also a member of the Allied Artists of America, Audubon Artists, the Rocky Mountain National Watermedia Association, and many other art associations."

This publication covers both public and private aspects of the work of Grace Cossington Smith (1892-1984), showing her keen attentiveness to the modern city environment, and her intimate response to more personal subjects. Among her varied themes are the Sydney Harbour Bridge (of which she painted some of the most iconic images), portraits, still lifes, landscapes, religious and war subjects, theatre and ballet performances, and domestic interiors. The artist was particularly entranced by wildflowers and the Australian light. This publication, featuring over 120 reproductions, includes a substantial amount of new information on the artist and makes special reference to the National Gallery of Australia's collection of 52 of her sketchbooks.
