First time posting a thread on this site. If the universe collapses, then my bad on that one.
quick question: for the purposes of this assignment, would it be more beneficial to flesh out the copy right next to the original? I had it a ways apart and pretty small onscreen, but if the point is to get composition down i guess do whatever works?
I picked Caravaggio's Conversion of St. Paul. I already see a few problems with my copy, but it seems as if the main focus is the horse's leg, which then guides the viewer down to the figure on the ground. He has a lot of interesting means of directing the focus of the piece with the placement of arms, legs, etc. Also the way he leaves parts of the figure lost in the shadows leaves some very interesting shapes throughout the composition.
Thanks much, i'm pretty excited about doing these assignments.
