 When observing the word of painting, watching a ballet, or hearing a nice classical concert, the general public and arts loving will have a good emotional response flow, but they may find it difficult to understand how these works were done.

Most people believe that luck, talent, patient, determination are highly responsible for bringing great art into being.

Although it may go unnoticed by those that are not professional in it.

Dancers are taught to entertain in time with their fellow dancers or entertainer in performers.

Visual artists and painters learn to manipulate the essentials of perspective, composition, and the use of light or shadow.

Classical musicians study the principles of harmony and musical form, they study how to attain nice rise and fall of sound of voice(intonation) and move their bodies in ways which follow the beat.

Bach and Beethoven would not exist without their total understanding of the principles of harmony, Monet and Vermeer would not have been celebrated were it not for their complete control of view and the use of light in their paintings.

In every artistic discipline, knowledge and regards for the core of one’s subject are part of the whole Student and professionals uses these established core philosophies.

In understanding technical concerns and continually refining  technique, you’ll learn to influence the rules in your own way, and all this will give meaning, differences and personal expression to your work. Bach, Beethoven and all the great masters perfected and change the principle; this is how you’ll become a rare quality.

Visual arts like drawing is difficult, especially since you have to observe three-dimensional elements on a two-dimensional surface.

But by understanding certain rules, even as a beginner, we will help your art to be convincing, nice and expressive with less frustration effort. Yet as you improve in your craft, you understand the principle behind each artwork.

Composition: Composition is the structural arrangement of elements in your drawing. From the beginning, you need to establish a good complete shape (contour) for your entire drawing.

All you need to do is to start work on the smaller shapes of single objects after you are satisfied with what you have conveyed the outline you want it to be. Always avoid drawing the smaller shape before the bigger one. It will make your work lack good definition.

Line is a good way to guide your visitors through your art!

Horizontal Lines: This is like those in landscape drawings, which usually convey a nice peaceful feelings. Diagonal lines can also add general, curves gives a much nice natural agreeable feel than straight lines.

Colors:  This deal with what colors you use in your work piece. It also has to deals with it’s intensity which you need to put into consideration when making choice as to how saturated or subtle you want the color to be.

Tone which is also called shading is equally related to color. Shading can also be used to create shadows in your work piece, this gives your work three-dimensional effects. You put your space into consideration too. This varies depending on what kind of drawing you’re working on.

Let’s put western art into consideration, it has negative space which is often filled with color or even shading, but in Asian some art leaves them blank, that is the white space of the paper itself around the central object; this is very effective too.

But don’t forget to put the same amount of shading between each element in your work piece.

Balance and Unity

These are taken to be the hallmarks of good beautiful conventional art work. We have some principles that have been tried and tested by artists, this you can use to find balance in your own work piece in other to make a difference and also there has to be a main area of interest in your drawing so that the viewers cannot be easily distracted by too many small elements.

Place your most important subject slightly off-center in your work to give a nice and beautiful view for the viewer and make sure it is facing into the drawing not out of your picture. Also avoid cutting of your painting directly into half either horizontally or vertically because it can make it non unique.

The first golden principle to learn is the rule of thirds. This rule is related to the golden mean.” It has been used by classical artists for ages.

This rule states that the element of an art work should be placed so that each element is in a proportion of Three to Five in relation to any other element because it enables you to avoid placing important elements in that areas that would visually cut the work piece into half thereby stopping the viewer eyes from wondering further.

Just as the rule of thirds, the rule or principle of odds is based on odd numbers. To attain a nice drawing, there has to be available odd numbers of subject in your piece, like one or three, other than an even number. If there is only one main focal point, place an even number around it in other for you to be able to end it with odd numbers of elements in your work directly down the center.
