Low Horizon Line with Vertical Composition
Today's project was doing a composition with a low horizon line with a vertical format. This is a small, abstract, acrylic sketch done on an illustration board chip. It is 5" x 7". I might point out another compositional element, sometimes considered a mistake, unless it is done on purpose. (And sometimes it is still a mistake!) : The area in the lower right . In this case I converged lines and objects in one place on purpose to pull attention to that area. This is call a tension/stress point - usually considered poor composition. You should usually separate or overlap elements in a composition - but they shouldn't "just" touch!
