Focal Point & My Painting; New Zazzle Award

Card with border based on my painting After the Dance. I received an award from Zazzle.












My painting, Building in Landscape; acrylic on canvas.
I wanted to discuss a painting not yet posted on my internet shops. The painting, Building in Landscape, is also shown in a black to white gray scale. In this post, I write about the focal point and techniques I have already discussed. The focal point is the building, particularly the side with the door. My focal point has the lightest light and the darkest dark. I painted the dark door with a warm blue and then a muted orange red. I was careful not to create a hole or space in the painting. This can happen with dark colours. All shapes lead to my focal point. The focal point is at different distances from the 4 edges of the painting. There are paths from each side of the painting to the focal point. There is more detail and hard edges in this area.

As a separate issue, yesterday I received Zazzle’s Today’s Best Award for my card with border, based on my painting After the Dance.
