Composition Studies

Studying tonal composition is one of the ways I work on my painting when I’m not at an easel. The practice of observing and recording the world as dark and light shapes trains my eye to not only compose pictures but to simplify the world. This ability to simplify helps me to communicate visually.  Even though these studies are done in pen, and marker, the practice of seeing in dark and light abstract shapes improves my ability to paint in any medium.
