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.
In this eighth lesson of his composition series, Glenn explores the subjective, or psychological element in art. You will learn how to create a mood, or modify themes through the use of expression, staging, and other human elements.
In this seventh lesson of his composition series, Glenn explores how to organize groups of multiple figures within a single composition. You will learn how to relate the figural groups to one another, and how multiple figures can combine to create compositions that are much more than the sum of their parts.
In this sixth lesson of his composition series, Glenn discusses the human figure as a design element within the composition, integrating concepts from many of the previous lessons. You will learn how to use the human figure to move the eye, create powerful abstract designs, and push the narrative of the work.
In this fifth lesson of his composition series, Glenn discusses the use of geometry and structure in composition, in relation to the frame and other elements within the picture. You will learn a powerful and organic approach to structure that does not confine your work to rigid rules, but instead lends it to a sense of order and grace.
In this fourth lesson of his composition series, 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.
In this third lesson of his composition series, Glenn explores the traditional concept of opposites, or juxtaposition, and how it can be applied to color, orientation, size, and a nearly infinite amount of elements within your compositions, in order to create structure and interest.
