Pushing Forward with "Pushing Out" a.k.a. the Image Compositional Element referred to as "REPOUSSOIR" ~ Creative Arts Three Day Weekend
When we last met, a conversation around a photo posted by Kavika, was inadvertently cut short by ME in that I closed the article not realizing there was more discussion to be had.
Start here …
I commented regarding compositional elements of the image, namely "trees" that bracketed an excellent image, "pushing out" in such a way as to keep a viewer's eye in the image. I noted that the term for such an element is "repoussoir" - In two-dimensional works of art, such as painting, printmaking, photography or bas-relief, repoussoir is an object along the right or left foreground that directs the viewer's eye into the composition by bracketing the edge.
So, to bring this full circle so-to-speak, this week's article will start with where we left off …
All related comments and/or images are welcomed, as is anything creative, directly related, or, totally otherwise.
