In this lesson, S13L1  Unexpected Emphasis  of  CREATIVE FOCAL POINTS,  using a still life photo of onions, Dianne illustrates how to change the focal point by altering value and texture contrasts, therefore shifting to an unexpected emphasis. In a study, she takes you step by step towards exploring this option as a method of relocating a subject’s focal point from one place to another. Note: photo reference is from pixabay.com..

 There are several ways to create focal points. Isolation, converging lines, contrasts, directional viewing, an image different from surrounding ones and placement are among the most common. But focal points are methods, not a must and when one exists in a subject, it might not be where we’d like it to be. This series explores four creative ways to change a focal point from its obvious location to another place as well as how to create a focal point where none exists.

 

Among Dianne’s passions about painting and teaching painting is how composing principles can expand creative freedom if the artist transcends the “rule” idea and instead, transforms the principle into a tool that opens creative doors.  Focal points (points of emphasis) have been used for centuries in painting, but the masters used adroit methods for creating them, not some standard formula.  Dianne’s intention is to reinforce this idea. Among contemporary paintings in which this principle  is adroitly used, check out Lori Putnam’s paintings.  See how Dianne makes a use of the principle among painting Perpetual Lunch in her Flora and Fauna Gallery.
