I found a few examples of my own work for this weeks examples. To emphasize your focal point by placement, you need to have elements that point the way to the focal area. In the piece above, the rocks are all pointing in towards the rush of water. I didn't really do that on purpose though, it just came out that way. This piece was done as an experiment and has multiple layers of paint and paper and the focal point developed with the layers.
I hope everyone in the US has a wonderful Memorial Day and thanks for stopping by!
