Tossing Around Ideas

Book Two

At the left is one of the Eight Compositional Devices.  It is called Frame, and is about enclosures that surround and protect (or capture and cage)--your choice of image or space.  

The Compositional Devices are like an artist’s bag of visual magic.  They are eight different ways to tell a visual story.



The same design principles apply to photography as well as drawing and painting.


             An ocean theme is used in the second book, which lets you compare the same concepts previously demonstrated with the apple illustrations.  Included is a case study, “Storm’s Keep,” that uses the eight compositional devices in a practical way.
