Downloadable Mixed Media Backgrounds + Elements

In my classes, I often instruct the artist to create a background painting first (with a strong composition), then to seat the image within it. The question I always get, is how do I find the composition within an abstract background? Intuition and practice have long been my instructors in this task! And now you too can use some of my favourite hand-painted backgrounds, images and photo collages in your own artwork, with these downloadable background files. It will help take the guesswork out of composition and get you started on your own piece more quickly.
