I found a wonderful book on the foundation we all need to create more expansive work.
It is called " A Painter's Guide to Design and Composition" by Margot Schulzke.
It is chock a block full of valuable info we can all use, handed down over centuries from one generation of artists to another. TRIED AND TRUE.
Frequently in rug hooking I find we have lots of unfounded and very dubious references we use to create rugs. Sit back, take it easy and learn from this straightforward and comprehensive book, the proof is in the pudding, the artist's paintings used for references.
