Creating paths in your painting can lead the viewer on a leisurely stroll through the painting. Your goal is to keep the viewer in your work as long as possible. Connecting dark or light values can create paths, as well as curves, diagonals, roads, rivers, telephone poles, fence posts, garden paths and plantings like vineyards.
These paths can also lead to important elements like figures, buildings or animals.
Think about ways to use paths to hold the viewer in as long as possible.
