Composition. It's critical to every award-winning painting you've ever seen. Objective. Non-objective. Landscape. Portrait. Watercolor. Acrylic.
Good composition isn't necessarily a beginning skill either. You have to be painting awhile to get to the point where your brain can tackle it as an idea. But if you are at a point where you've decided you want to get really good at painting, take another look at composition. You won't learn it all at once and that's OK. The more you learn about it and then try and use it in your work, the more you'll understand how useful it can be.
And someday, we promise, you'll love it. And your paintings will be better for it.
