Parkway Series # 243 12 x 16 oil Sold
Mountainside scenes with steep slopes and diagonal lines appeal to my sense of drama in compostion. Anytime you can compose a scene with an "X" compostition, there is action/interest. I could have given the background mountain more of a slope to the middle to create a more dramatic compostition, however, the more gentle sloping horizon balances the steep mountainside to create a bit more restful compostion, and focuses the drama to the foreground.
