break rules



12"x6" diptych
So I'm back from Westport and tackling a new subject. I'm working on breaking the -Don't put masses too close to the edge of the canvas- theory. Also, I'm going to attempt a seriously high light key. This is the initial breakdown. The landscape is California again. By the time I'm done with the subject the viewer should smell the eucalyptis and feel like they're being dressed in sunlight. A tall challenge but that's what I'm chasing.
ps. I realize that the composition law could be unbreakable. I'm still consiberably tired. Will try anyway.

And the score is...

Brian wins, and the rules lose.

Thanks Sam. I'm working on a 48"x 24" version. I hope this is a solid start

Hi Brian, it's always good to challenge "the rules." Keep it coming! And yes it is a solid start!

Thanks Loriann. I see your Washington trip is over. I really enjoyed your posts. Try to bring some of that cool air home with you. You even got to sleep in the car. Always a nice touch on any working vacation. Bubble wrap. Very creative!
