This is the best book I've found on compositional layout. From focal point and area, to ways of dividing space, creating distance and more, this book is a gem for it's age. Its copyright is 1972 by Jack Hamm. I swear by this book and use it in several works, preliminary sketches as well as finishing touches. I'm lost without it's genius, no-nonsense approach. You won't be disappointed!
Don't be turned off by the lack of pretty pictures. This book contains more valuable information in the first 10 pages than most other lavish books have in 100 pages of pictures and text. A valuable reference for composing landscapes for watercolor.
No non sense, right to the roots.. grab your pencil or charcoal and just do it!
