View Catcher Artist View Finder

Description

The ViewCatcher™ is a tool designed to be a view finder for artists, photographers, crafters and any other application
where it might be needed.

BASIC FEATURES
■ Made of durable ABS plastic.
■ Color is #5 neutral gray (1 = black and 10 = white).
■ The opening is adjustable to fit any size format.
■ The small hole in the center is helpful for judging warm and cool colors.
■ The hole on the edge can be used to attach a lanyard so it can be worn.
■ Some common sizes for projects are indicated on the front and back. Open the
ViewCatcher™ to the size of your working surface.
■ Helps you decide if you have a good composition and focal point.

LANDSCAPE PAINTING
■ Select your composition by looking through the ViewCatcher™ and moving it towards
and away from the subject.
■ Decide if the composition will be horizontal or vertical.
■ Decide if the composition will fit one of the pre-selected sizes indicated.
■ Use the ViewCatcher™ to determine the horizon line.
■ Look for a good composition (Edgar Payne's Composition of Outdoor Painting might
be a helpful reference).
■ One can imagine dividing both the horizontal and vertical into thirds. Where the lines
would intersect indicates good basic focal points in the composition. (See illustration
on the left).

STILL LIFE AND PORTRAIT PAINTING
■ Open the ViewCatcher™ to the shape and size of your working surface.
■ Use the ViewCatcher™ to determine if the composition will be horizontal or vertical.
■ Look at the fit of the items in the frame of the view finder. This can help you
determine if items need to be rearranged, added or eliminated.
■ Look at the items in the composition using the ViewCatcher™ - How do the objects
relate to each other? Does one object overpower the others?
■ One can imagine dividing both the horizontal and vertical into thirds. Where the lines
would intersect indicates good basic focal points in the composition. (See illustration)
