My Unfinished Study of a Streetcar
When you are painting a single item, i.e. figure, streetcar, the edges of the canvas and the compositional structure must be considered. Unity of the whole painting is important. I have done prior posts about different compositional structures. An artist can connect one side of the figure or streetcar to a canvas edge. A line or shape can connect the item to the edge. This is an unfinished study I am painting, a streetcar. The end of the streetcar is connected to the left canvas edge. The street and line of stores also connect the streetcar to the edges. I decided to use a square format. While I am making changes to my study, you can see my overall direction.
