Introduction: Mastering Composition with the Canon of Design

Learn the language of design to stand with the great masters and reflect the beauty prominently found in nature. Endure the journey to achieve artistic excellence!

Thanks for taking the time to visit! Just being here on this page shows that you have a slight curiosity about mastering composition, and want to improve. Even if you are a beginner or a professional, most of these techniques are overlooked, or not even mentioned….no kidding. Some people rely on their gut to guide them, or worse yet, the rule of thirds (#AbolishROT). Both are unreliable as you will discover throughout this project.

Why Would I Commit to Such an Impossible Project?

Launch Day for the Canon of Design 365 Project was September 28th, 2013. Original Name of 365: “The Rule of Thirds Killed Design and Left it for Dead”.

This started as a 365 projectwhere I would upload one composition related article, per day, for a full year, but it’s become so much more than that! You’re probably sick and tired of all of the junk you find on the internet and are thirsty for some REAL knowledge. I know I was! That’s why I created the Canon of Design…so artists could have a place to go to when they were ready to take their art not just to the next step, but to the master level. Thousands of artists visit this site, so you’re not alone.

refined the information I found in school, books, personal experience, internet, trial and error, and wisdom gained from studying and analyzing countless master works, then presented it to artists in need of reliable, applicable content. One article a day, for a year is quite the commitment, but I knew it would be something extremely important for the world of art, which artists of all kinds could benefit from for years and years to come. It’s the only resource on the internet with this much invaluable information on mastering composition.

“Skills grow on a basis of understanding, not on ignorance.” ~Myron Barnstone

The Canon of Design was created to help introduce to you some methods of visual awareness and mastering composition that will help you in your craft whether it be photography, cinematography, painting, drawing, sculpting, architecture, interior design, graphic design…it can be applied to all of these fields.  It’s the key to mastering composition, understanding and creating your own masterpiece! Sure, to some of you it may seem a lot at first, but if you get one or two concepts down, then you will have more to learn when you’re ready. Learn to crawl before you run a marathon. By all means, take baby steps mastering composition!
