24 Artists Show You How to Design Powerful, Eye-Catching Paintings -- in All Mediums

By Frank Webb

Here it is—the book sought by students and myself. Composition deals more with forces than with objects. It should not only precede execution but also spring life-like out of countless decisions made during painting. It requires little courage to paint what you see. To paint what you think and feel takes guts.  Break through the composition barrier. 24 painters show you how.

Create compelling paintings by mastering compositional techniques!

While happy accidents may occasionally contribute to producing strong, eye-catching paintings, conscious painting is more important. According to author Frank Webb, "Composition is more important than fact, technique, or subject." To create compelling, expressive works, you must make the composition the foundation of your plan. This book provides example-by-example demonstrations of how you can achieve this.

The works of 24 professional artists included in this book give you an over-the-shoulder look at how to apply composition techniques. Armed with this information, you can paint a powerful picture and—just as importantly—analyze and improve a work that has gone wrong.

Strengthen Your Paintings with Dynamic Composition is an indispensable addition to the artist's library that you will read and re-read. Webb's memorable instruction will guide the beginner through composition challenges and serve as a reference for the more experienced painter.
