Landscape Composition Rules
Johannes Vloothuis has compiled 40 landscape composition rules for artists with samples and corrections. He says: "I have put together a series of 'rules'... of composition that when used properly should reduce the flaws in your landscape paintings. ....They are to help you out when you are in doubt on where to place diverse elements in your work. "
"Nature's paintings are huge and three-dimensional.....we should take from nature what looks good and improve what doesn't. I believe talent is not essential to be a good artist. Hard work is. .... Talent is the ability to spot what looks right or wrong in a painting. Knowledge is knowing how to correct what doesn't look right."
