In this video training, Jim Wodark shows you:
Jim Wodark says that painting your canvas with color before nailing the composition is like trying to spread pretty frosting on a half-baked cake. No matter how good the frosting is, the cake isn’t going to hold up … and you won’t be satisfied with the outcome.
In this powerful video, Jimproves that the answer to “What makes a good painting good?” is great composition. It’s what high-level artists know and use to make their paintings rise above the rest. Suddenly things will start feeling right, all because you understand these composition principles.
And one of the best ways to understand the mind of a painter is by listening to an interview to really get the motivation behind the art. A personal interview with Jim is included for you. You’ll really appreciate his tremendous insight and the sage advice he shares here.
Then, take the time to view some of Jim’s best paintings in the gallery. Not only is this great eye candy for you, you’ll be able to see the outcome of Jim’s tried-and-true composition techniques in the end product because now you’ll know what to look for!
Here’s a trick: Before you even watch Jim teach the composition secrets, look at the gallery segment first. Then after you view the instructional video, look through the gallery again. You’ll recognize his tips and tricks at work in every painting.
BONUS: Be looking for the bonus segment on mixing grays. Believe it or not, this is another secret that most of the great masters use to actually make paintings feel more colorful!
