I thought I give everybody, who might be interested, a short update about my new book – COMPOSITION and COLOR. as you can see in the following images, it will be pretty boring – just some ancient stuff. way back then they painted it with real color! and actually they thought about it first before they started to use that real color. amazing what you can find out about the secrets behind composing a good image…






1. joseph wright, 1766 – a philosopher giving that lecture in which a lamp is put in place of the sun
2. delaroche 1843 – herodias
3. giovanni battista salvi, 1609 – 1685 – madonna at prayer
4. jan vermeer, 1668 – the geographer
5. jean auguste dominique ingres, 1848 – venus anadyomene

I learned from Richard Schmid’s painting book that all beauty can be simplified to technical facts. Just seeing these images opens my mind to a whole new way to study. Very interesting. Thanks!

In fact after thinking about it a moment and studying the images I think this post may be the most enlightening thing I have yet discovered in the world of blogging.
