About principles and philosophy of composition

Composition and Style is quite personal, there is no universal 'correct' principle.

What is your compositon philosopy ?

My compositon and style is influenced by Chinese paintings and Taoism.

I shall discuss this vast and interesting topic in another category.

Pyramid composition was probably originated from ancient greece. Renasance artist Michaelangelo used pyramid compostion in many of his sculptures. Pyramid composition conveys a ssence of stablity.

There were three legged bronze utensils in ancient China. But so far I have not read any notes directly discussed about pyramid composition in ancient Chinese painting theories.
