Way, way upPosted: March 7, 2016
Yikes, I’ve run out of my favourite square blocks of Fluid paper. I’ve grown to love the square format for sketches. I bought a block of a different format (9″ x 12″) but I just don’t like it as much. What is it about the square format that makes it so pleasing to work with? Is it the symmetry of the format? Is it because the square makes it easy to divide the space up on the page? Or is it because it’s the perfect frame for a composition? An artist whose work I love, and who uses square formats so successfully is Susanne Strater. Have a look at her wonderful pastels and the way she so effectively composes her pictures.
