Composition revisited

This blog has been on hiatus, another word for just plain lazy. Let me quote Michael Jordan when he returned to basketball "I'm back".  

I redid the exercise on composition - one object some pieces of paper and  well make different compositions.

We all have the habit of just wanting to quickly get to painting.  This exercise suggests that taking the time to work out the composition might make a better painting.  In Mike Svob's workshop, he emphasized the same thing.  Carol moves her objects around, Mike did pencil thumbnails, but they both spend a lot of time on composition

Something to think about.
