Laying Brick

8 X 10
Acrylic on Panel
A friend of mine took this photograph and when she showed me I thought it would be perfect for my concentration. It shows working and building something that is in everyday use. The colors are all in a neutral range, with some warm colors. There is not a large range of foreground and background, but I like that about the composition because it gives the feeling of hard work. The worker is the focal point, which I made by the contrast of orange on the neutral background. I also emphasized the focal point by the proportion and location of the worker, making him the most important object in the painting.
