Why Connecting Shapes Will Improve Your Paintings

In this tutorial I will share ideas on connecting shapes for a better design. Beginners often never consider design and only focus on copying what they see which usually ends with bad art. One way to avoid this is to use some basic design skills and a little imagination.

In the example I will demonstrate how to connect shapes through value and some imagination. The end result is a composition and overall design unity that will increase my chances of making a successful painting.
