1 A solid composition
Before my compositional sketches, first comes the brief. It is to paint a key battle in the fourth season of Game of Thrones that involves the Wildlings fighting a depleted Night’s Watch, defending the wall from on high. I’m given a few key details that give me an idea of the scene. It’s best to focus on the composition and the most important elements of the fight – for now that means making the wall the main character.
