My name is Daniel Novotny. I'm an award-winning international artist based in Slovakia. I live by the words of Edgar Whitney: "No door is closed to a stubborn scholar." I teach art theory and practice on my educational website In my teaching I emphasize the importance of understanding the context in which we create. I base my education on the concept of "4 pillars of creative composition". Each student must do their best to understand the laws of composition and learn to conceive painting as an abstract shape configuration. It is the way towards mastering creative composition.
