This Wednesday we'll be talking about the cruciform armiture.
When you bring in your pictures to use for your next painting, think in terms of 'portrait'. This doesn't mean a picture of a person as we usually think of the term but as it is used when you are printing. Landscape vs. portrait. Or the paper turned with the longest measures going up and down.
A quick word about the term 'armitures'. This is just one man's term to help you understand that a painting needs a base on which to build your artistic statement. He has put these particular examples down and given them titles, such as 'cruciform' or 's', etc. You don't need to remember the individual terms or what they mean exactly - they are just reminders of ways in which movement is achieved within a painting. So think of them as aids or tools and not as rules.
