3 weeks then I think you are still searching for your own style. I think the advice to review paintings and art works is good advice. Also you can look at flower aranging which attempts to create a form from a number of elements. Why does the large sunflower work in that position. Another exersize is the 7 pebbles pattern. Just take 7 irregular things and arrange them in to pleasing patterns. Irregular things always seem to work in odd numbers rather than even. Anyway with the eye there is no right answer and there is no point in copying other people, just trying to understand what makes their art work. And have fun.
