Yesterday I posted charcoal drawings by William Scott. Today I’m posting his paintings. I look at these as a series of compositional experiments. I like to look at each object that he separated, grouped. I look at the uncomfortable comedy, the energy charge each shape gets in different placements with other shapes, and how they associate with the edge of the canvas. If you think about composition like a game, it’s more funner. Composition for the win!!!
