Evaluation. We examine the numerous steps of image composition within the topic of portraits, resp. nudes:
from format alignment in relation to the subject/motif, components of the image composition (line and range, contrasts, weighting lighter and darker elements, expressing calmness or tension)
via choice and creation of the coloring by mixing the colors (relation and effect of warm and cold hues) and application of various painting techniques (brush, spatula)
to the elaborate detail work in relation to the effect of the picture in its entirety and harmony
