Mastering Composition by Ian Roberts

Composition makes or breaks every painting

Whether you paint figurative or abstract, still life or landscapes, all great paintings have one thing in common-strong composition. Without it even the most compelling subject will lack drama and cohesion, regardless of medium.

Ian Roberts utilizes more than 40 years of painting and teaching experience to show you, step-by-step, how to build great compositions every time.

Whether you’re an advanced painter troubleshooting a specific problem or a beginner looking for a basic comprehensive foundation to start your studies, the proven methods in this book will dramatically improve the way you paint.
