Tip 2. The elusive Focal point
Every artist has been told to have a focal point in their painting. "It's the entry point! It grabs the attention of the viewer!" But it's just (sometimes) hard to either choose one or even remember to put one in. So what if you missed planning your composition with the all important focal point at the typical intersection of the thirds (painting cut in thirds with lines intersecting in 4 spots). Just add it in, with more contrasting colours, or more details, or more texture. Try it, add one in if forgotten it will help harmonize and balance the painting.
