Aesthetic art

The fundamentals

Aesthetic art is of course like any art open to opinion. Meaning that what I consider aesthetic art might not necessarily mean you consider it art as well. However these principals I will try to explain in this walk through are as old as 1200 AD. Things like perspective, color , light and composition have always served the image regardless of style, genre or opinion. In this short course I will show you some of the basics that I use myself in my own work. The piece on the right was specifically created for this purpose. The video explains in 7 steps what I did, and the slide show below will show you the fundamentals of image making that I used behind the scenes for the choices within this art work. I hope you enjoy.

Also, you will be able to participate in a contest with these skills! 

Any medium is allowed as long you use the subject Gas station and follow the fundamentals explained on this page!
