Peter, thank you for great videos. How often do you update or add new videos? I always try to update with new videos as often as possible. Right now I try to update at least with two to three videos per month.
Do you sell art videos on DVDs? No at this time only through this abstract art lesson website.

Composition in abstract painting can be tricky if the shape is in the wrong place. There is no content to distract the viewer. However, often representational painters will cause an unimportant object in, say, a still life to assume too much importance by placing it in an awkward position, using a jarring color,m or giving it too much pattern or texture. This will distract the viewer from the intended focal point. Imagine a serene still life of roses with a carefully rendered can opener in one corner of the painting. Make sure your "can opener" is your intention.
