Compositional Structures in Art- The Triangle


The Wreck
My Original Fine Art Painting
Acrylic on canvas mounted on wood stretcher bars

This is my painting, The Wreck and a Zazzle mug with the image of the painting. A triangular structure in art work is used frequently by artists. When the triangle sits on its base, the structure is more stable. The top of the triangle gives visual weight. Many old masters put images of the Virgin Mary at the top of their triangular structures. A triangular structure that does not sit on its base is unstable and creates tension. The wrecked ship in my painting uses this instability.

I sell my original paintings and fine art greeting cards at my Etsy internet shop. Fine art prints are sold at my Fine Art America shop.
