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 eighth lesson, 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.
