January 18, 2022 – Reblog / Review : Working the Painting Language – The Visual Path, via Dianne Mize

Dianne’s continuing series of tips and samples of painting’s language of line and shapes and so much more, including, as per this reblog of her most current post, The Visual Path, have been a source of inspiration for me for quite a while now, and this is no exception.

She provides not only the 2 examples in my header, but an entirely different style image, one from one of my favorite painters, John Singer Sargent, and ties it to the two simpler – yet in principle – similar images top of the page.

And though I personally prefer the top abstract image over the bottom one, it’s just simply more pleasing to my eye, her point is well made when she adds ( to a prior paragraph with much more information ) –

How we arrange what we are emphasizing creates a visual path.  Value contrast is the compositional tool used in our example, guiding the eye in that circular path.

And with her stunningly beautiful Sargent example, Garden in Corfu, Dianne applies her point quite strongly.

My next post or two, I’ll show how I tried, failed, tried again, and got an image I wanted, consciously applying the concept of creating (allowing?) a visual path in one’s work, but only by finally deliberately / consciously wrecking the original image…. 😯
