The 3 photos are of the same scene,but are different ..what is the the difference between each photo.  These photos represent an important element in the making of composition and a good learning point for those who wish to improve on composition ..the most important part of a painting.

Hi Michael! I'm curious to see the photos but they don't appear on either one of your posts. Is there another place to view them? Thanks!:)

Hi Jennifer.  Alas, I took them down because no one seemed  to be to  enthusiastic about it?  They are on the photo section of MY PAGE.....is there a way you can look through my album of photos? ..let me know if you get to them....they are 3 photos of a seascape with cliff and ocean.  The question was to find the compositional difference between all three.

Hey, some of us are busy people....not ME, but I still just saw this!  Give us a chance ; ).  Can you re-post them?

I'll take a look and see if I can answer! :)

I guess I was too late. I'm not sure where the photos are. Also, I only see 9 of your paintings now. Didn;t you have more?

Hi, Michael! I just became aware of your discussions regarding composition & that is exactly what I wanted to talk to you about! After you commented on my painting, I realize that this is what I need to study (composition) and I was wondering if you could recommend a book. The only one I have is Ian Roberts 'mastering composition". It's a very good book. One thing he recommends is to do one composition a day and I think I need to go back to this again....but still need more instruction. Things you mention is not in this book like the 5 value masses or shapes. Please feel free to advise. THanks, WALDA

Hi, I will be home next week from vacation.....I will get that list of books to you then.
