Just some gesture sketches in Painter that turned into a little picture somehow. ( I decided to post a slightly less "worked" version as the final. This is a sketch after all. I kept gravitating toward version 6 over the posted version 9. I may not know when to stop, but here's to digital iterations!)
I thought it would be fun to experiment with the "divine proportion" grid trying to wrestle this chaos into some order. I really have only relied on instincts compositionally ( I once had a Design teacher tell me I was the closest in the class to being a "natural designer". Oh well, close but not quite. I guess I'll take it). Anyway, I'd love to keep studying more composition theory. Any experts on the subject out there? I'd love to kick the theories around a little. Here's to never "knowing it all".
