Have you ever painted a panorama? Such compositions are wide and narrow, kind of stretchy-looking. They have far more width than depth and this gives you a whole, different perspective of how to look at a subject.
Today’s images are some examples that have a panoramic look, except maybe, for the last one.
I try to design such compositions with the aim of looking at them from right to left. There are so many horizontals, that it is important to break the sequence now and then with some verticals.
Art isn’t all about seeing and recording. Getting the composition right by making your painting interesting, personal and well-balanced are vital for success.
