In my painting above I purposely tried to direct your attention to what I felt was the center of interest. I have some strong diagonals that draw you into the picture plane. At the same time encompass your interest by focusing on the significance of the clouds and the sky.
I like this painting much better in real life. I seem to have trouble getting my whites and blues to photograph well. And photoshop doesn't seem to help much.
- Do you consciously apply your design knowledge to your work
- Or is it second nature to you now?
- What about thumbnails ... do you try out a couple of different scenarios in pencil before you commit to a design?
