Ell

One of my favourite art books is Composition of Outdoor Painting by Edgar Payne. He describes several compositional schemes, one of which is L (Ell) or Rectangular. Basically a framing device, as with the foreground tree and table here. Perhaps a fence would have been better than the table. Elm tree front left is a scan I did several years ago. Perhaps I should do a few more, especially now that it’s winter and the trees have all lost their leaves, at least the foreign imports. I used to do most of this type of image in Vue, but I need to keep paying a subscription even to open my old files. I’ll do it all in Blender henceforth.
