Soulburn Art Lesson Page Updated Mar 9th 2021

In composition theory, a more pleasing composition is a composition that contains contrast. Now by contrast I don't mean only the contrast control in photoshop, although that can be used to give us the kind of contrast we're discussing.

I'm talking about the original definition of the word: "Contrast: The state of being strikingly different from something else, typically something in juxtaposition or close association."

So contrast is two opposing things. Like black and white is a contrast. Big and small is a contrast. Soft and hard is a contrast. Loud and quiet is a contrast. Thick and thin is a contrast. Textured and smooth is a contrast.

A very important topic in composition theory, and available for the first time as a youtube video, this tutorial will discuss the concept in detail, and it will lay the groundwork for a number of upcoming composition tutorials I have planned in the future.
