June 10, 2017

Drawing and painting can be rough.  Simplifying your composition is the first step in making a great drawing and painting.  In this how-to video I show you how to make your viewfinder to do just that!

 

 Step 1: Assemble your materials

  • index card (4"x 6")

  • x-acto knife

  • ruler

  • pencil

  • tape

  • floss (optional)

Step 2: Measure your viewfinder 

 

1" on the longest side - 1 1/2" on the shortest side.  Your viewfinder window is 3" x 2"

 

Step 3: Cut your viewfinder

 

Step 4: Add floss in the center of your viewfinder for extra accuracy

 

Step 5: Frame your composition - experiment with alternate compositions!
