    Farvus' compositions 100 !!

    I dedicated one small sketchbook just to explore design in it's pure form. It turned out to be very challangeing exercise (which means I'm learning from it)

    Are these hand made man? It's a noble effort. What is your work/study plan? Do you tend to invent these yourself, or study what you see in existing images? Good luck and learn alot!

    Very nice idea! I should do it in my sketchbook as well. We all should!
    I think Jason Manley would be interested in seeing these were they a response for his composition video (which is GREAT).

    GriNGo - Thanks. These are hand made (with help of ruler) but I might do some quick digital ones in future in case I have some lazy day. Planning on paper has this advantage that it forces to think more before drawing a line.
    I don't really have tight study plan right now. Mostly drawing a bit from life every day and the rest would be imagination work. Starting this was rather spontaneous decision. I don't know if I'll manage to keep it for long. As for drawing these. So far I invented these compositions myself but I'm open to any other methods. Translating nature into more abstract geometric arrangement seems interesting too. Still I can be just inspired by what I see and base my invention on this.
    tmth - Thanks. I saw just part of live streaming about composition and it had some nice examples. There are the same principles used here but it's not my response to this video. I was thinking about composition for a long while but unfortunately doing more representional art didn't really test my ideas and skills.

    This one is fairly simple but I redrew it several times. Lots of strongly correlated variables.

    Failed attempt. I didn't have clear statement so it went out of control.

    Ended with too much weight on the left but I'm still satisfied.

    I really like the last 2 compositions. Personally, I would remove the upper rectangle in the one composition.
    You have a nice idea for the sketchbook, it`s interesting.

    marina_koleva - Thanks for suggestion. You got good eye . I noticed this upper rectangle is unnecessary but it was unfortunately after I blocked it with ink.

    Five stars already? It's not a big thing really but thanks for encouragement.

    This one sucks. Ended up totally static and much more formal than I wanted.

    The phallic representation in number 4 seems so clear that it seems almost impossible that you weren't aiming for that. As for number 5 I may have a different eye( well I do) but I can't see it working without the upper right rectangle..
    Number 8 would be greatly improved with a simple tilt I think. I find it funny that even when composition is stripped to nakedness as it is here, there are still so many possible interpretations, and things that work beyond just compositional structure, but almost as emotional bearing elements.

    "A drawing is not necessarily academic because it is thorough, but only because it is dead. Neither is a drawing necessarily academic because it is done in what is called a conventional style, any more than it is good because it is done in an unconventional style. The test is whether it has life and conveys genuine feeling."- Harold Speed

    thirdeye - Thanks!
    The Pariano - Really? I see number 4 more as cigarettes . I meant the upper rectangle in 2. Thanks for dropping by. Really good suggestions.
    j umfress - Thanks. Feel free to experiment. It might look boring at first but gets more interesting once you play with it a little.

    Short creative block and other things to do but I'll try to go back. I was too lazy for this type of composition. Minimalist stuff requires extra attention.

    This one sucks but I didn't have better idea for today. Dealing with weight, repetition, framing, placement, horizontals vs verticals.

    my painting teacher had us do an exercise like this in which the objective was to create compositions in which both the black and white asserted themselves equally so that neither served as figure or ground. It was definitely challenging and fun. this is very good idea for a dedicated sketchbook!

    Ator - Yep. For some compositions here it was my goal to give equal attention to positive and negative space. If you do it succesfully it basically doubles the interest in picture.

    Makes me think about composition a lot more...going to do some paint overs for more thinking...and possibilities.

    Make a sketchbook happy, feed it a tip to improve!

    I like both of them and I like the idea. I've always been interested in pure design, but with the need to practice other essentials, and the large mass of inspiring imagery out
    there being more developed paintings, this kinda get's thrown in the back seat.

    I'm gonna start a sketchbook like this too. Post more if you've got them.

    Pigeonkill - Cool. I'm glad it helps other people too
    Line - Thanks!

    Meh. I missed two days. I need to find some way to more easily generate new problems to solve.

    I didn't put enough thought into that but it will do.

    Turned out totally unbalanced... I'm not going to hide failure though

    I actually stumbled upon this idea two days ago in a german forum where they talked about how playful it was to approach a painting when we were little. And i found that abstract forms are acutually such a nice playground for this approach, that i somehow lost during the last years.
    plus: you can develop your sense of composition and you get to experiment, which is great.
    I drew some compositions too but i never thought about posting them..foolish me.
    I might do that too.

    KingElvis - Yep. It is some sort of playground. I don't need to worry about realism so the only thing left is creating pleasant composition. Not as easy as it seems though.
