Artists use compositional structures to help achieve our expressive goals but also unify a painting. I wrote about the cantilever and the bridge structures. My painting, The Lighthouse, has both structures. The access ramp enters the painting and the lighthouse is connected to this cantilever shape. The smaller ramp also acts as a bridge, joining the lighthouse and access ramp. Artists frequently use more than one compositional structure.
