Inspirations from the Met Part 2: Compositions

While at the Met, I did a number of little compositional studies of these paintings and also the Gentilleschi from Part 1. I drew the basic shapes in my sketchbook, and included basic shading in 3-5 values and added arrows for the flow of energy/path of the eye through the canvas. Composition is an area I really want to improve on, and I hope studying these will help.
