The Artistic Qualities Of Landscape Composition

The aspects of landscape composition that make it a fine art include those of Unity, Variety, Character, Propriety, and Finish. We discuss each of these elements in turn. We begin with the quality of Unity since a unified approach forms the overall theme. We explore several themes or "styles" including the Natural Style, Architectural, and the Picturesque and how these styles are obtained.

Also reviewed is the quality of Variety and how it supports the major styles. This section is then completed by a discussion of Character, Propriety, and Finish.
