Pictorial Composition
with Nathan Fowkes

"Great art requires great composition; our work cannot achieve its full expression without a practical knowledge of pictorial composition." - Nathan Fowkes

The goal of this course is to give artists and art students the ability to powerfully engage their audience through the design and composition of their artwork. The class will be a serious exploration of designing and composing our art to best convey the mood, story, emotion and visual impact of the subjects we portray. During our time together I'll take you step by step through the practical application of:

- The design and development process: taking a concept to a beautifully composed finish.
- The creation of mood, environment and story through pictorial composition.
- Composition in art history, learning from the masters.
- Theatrical scene composition to create compelling presentation art.
- How to solve compositional problems quickly and effectively.
- Step by step painting concepts, digital and traditional.
- Numerous photoshop demonstrations, screen captured live to show you the process in action.
- Building your personal work and concept art portfolio.
