Foundations of Composition

In the Foundations of Composition video lesson series, world-famous artist and instructor Glenn Vilppu offers you a rich understanding of the complex subject of composition in fine art. Glen lectures, demonstrates, and analyzes the Old Masters in his usual straightforward and concise style as he digs down to the practical tools of composition and how they can be applied to your own work.

In this fourth lesson, Glenn draws your attention to the frame and how to use it to create order and structure, as well as tie a composition to an architectural surrounding. You will learn how to use 2D and 3D design elements in tandem, to create powerful pictures.
