131 Exploring composition

I‘ve stated before that composition is the most important component of art. It can be simple, some of the most beautiful paintings have a simple structure, yet also complex. One of my major frustrations with the many books I’ve read on the subject is that the essence of composition is often avoided in favor of formulas that often dodge the real business of design.

No doubt I have more to learn about composition but here is a video that sums up my current thinking.
