I mention in my impressionist technique
and technology video that they often used open composition.
So today I wanna go over what the differences are between open and closed composition. Closed
composition is where all the elements are arranged within the frame to have a clear focal point. The other
elements do not try to draw the viewers eye from one point to another, but rather
complement the focal point. A closed composition is often more static and stable. An open composition as you can probably
guess is the opposite. There is not a singular focal point and
the visual elements keep your eyes moving around. Subjects may be placed at the edge of a scene and they create a sense environment beyond the frame.
Unlike a close composition, where it appears complete. Of course not every
single work will fit into one category or the other. It is possible that they could be
partially both. What do you think of these works of art? Are they opened or closed? Let me know in
the down bar below. Thanks so much for watching this video.
