In my painting, Soccer Game, I wanted to convey the movement of the game and figures. I have done prior posts about movement, edges and direction of shapes. In my above painting I have also created movement with repetition. The heads of the players from left to right move downwards in a curve. There is also a space between the cast shadow and foot of the soccer player on the left. These spaces between cast shadows and form create movement. Today I saw a wonderful photograph of a skate board jumper. The figure was on a diagonal at the top of the jump. The cast shadow and skate board were separate from the figure. It is best to paint figures at the top of the movement.
