Creating and Understanding Compositions


  1. improve perception and self-expression

  2. help plan projects

  3. make a finished artwork


To an artist, looking and seeing should not be the same thing.  Looking is simply noticing an object as you pass by it.

Seeing, or perceiving, is actually studying the object. 

  • It is picking up on every line and shadow.

  • It is observing all the details.

  • Through drawing practice, artsist become better at perceiving.
