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!
