This is how I teach the 1/3rd composition. Once it is understood the students will go right to the spot they want without drawing a bunch of lines on their canvas. They say “A” is the prime spot with b ,c and “D” are the lesser preference.
Using my wacom bamboo drawing pad I quickly did a staircase waterfall scene that I can do a quickie 8 x 10 in acrylic then oils to see if it will work out. At this point I am just interested in the comp and color harmony not values or croma’s . You can also see how I will lessen the interest in b,c and d just not of any value in kind.
