This painting is a bit different for me. I’ve tried very hard to put a bit more composition in my paintings.
The art rules say that one should try to lead the eye around in the painting by use of color, lights and darks, contrast and shapes.
In this painting, I tried to lead your eye around with various shapes.
I have mixed feelings about this. I know there needs to be an order in the chaos of my paintings. But, I don’t want to force someone’s eye to go where they don’t want it to go. When I view abstract art, I like to give my eye free reign to find whatever it is my imagination wants to see.
I’m going to work on these various ways of leading the eye for a bit in my next few paintings.
So beware, you may go where you don’t plan on going.
