Canon of Design – Mastering Artistic Composition Book [Techniques]

Mastering composition in the visual arts is complex, but mostly because the design techniques used by master painters have been kept secret from all of us. They won’t teach you these powerful techniques in expensive art schools. Most of them don’t know them, and if they do, they are kept hush-hush to benefit their own art.

The cookie cutter techniques they are teaching in schools, like rule of thirds and leading lines, will not allow artists to reach their true potential. They will lead them down a dark road of creating mediocre art. If you want to be an elite artist like Da Vinci, Van Gogh, or Bouguereau, you have to dig deeper for quality knowledge.

Being on this page…at this moment…is a step in the right direction.

You see, if you never found this page, then you might’ve gone ten more years trying to figure out why your art doesn’t have the “spark” of the masters. I’m not referring to master painters alone…there are master photographers that have used these techniques too, like Annie Leibovitz and Henri Cartier-Bresson.

Who Can Use These Techniques?

These techniques for mastering composition don’t just apply to photography or painting…they apply to all visual arts. They are tools of elite artists, and serious artists must know them if they’re wanting to take their art to the master level.

The artistic journey doesn’t have to be a complete struggle with quality knowledge at your fingertips. Don’t you want your art have the spark of the masters? Invest in your art for yourself, and for the people who will enjoy your art centuries from now. It’s never too late!

What People Are Saying About the Canon of Design

“Dear Tavis,

I just wanted you to know I’ve read your book and I really have to tell you that you have written a composition masterpiece!!! This is the best work I have ever seen on this topic. It explains the why, how and when and offers a much deeper understanding of composition, arrangement of shapes and values than any of the typical “Rule of Three” or “Golden Mean” or other formulaic approaches. I can never thank you enough for writing and sharing such an important work.

I have a long way to go to apply all the information you provided, but I am determined to learn it all and make it second nature in my paintings.

Thank you again for taking the time and for selflessly sharing the dynamic messages in your book. You have written the bible for composition.

Your fan,Thom Bluemel

“Tavis, I finished reading and absorbing your book. I found myself driving to work today with freshly scrubbed eyes. I perceive in a new way my world and my art. I have paintings unfinished that have waited downstairs incomplete until I read your book. Thank you so much for sharing your brilliance in communicating your expertise!

All the best, Marion storm

“Fantastic read, recommend to all all visual art lovers. Train your eyes to see so much more to the visual aesthetics art world.” Firdaus Omar

“I love this project and all the information you’ve been laying out here. Thanks so much for doing this its been incredibly helpful. Its pretty crazy to me to consider how long I’ve looked into composition techniques and how long it took to come across some really useful stuff.” Kyle

“I can’t thank you enough for this wonderful blog series. As a newbie to photography and more importantly, to design, I find these well-curated resources and all of your design breakdowns very thought provoking and inspiring. It’s a welcome reprieve to the inane droll found in most of the photography “tutorials” and “guides” that emphasize the trial-and-error showered with “rule of thirds”, as if there were almost no technique or forethought involved in art. I am certain that the knowledge and wisdom you’ve shared here will continue to engage and inspire many acolytes of design for a long time to come. Thank you, thank you, thank you!!!” ~ An Omni Mouse
