"Composition is just a way of taking the eye on a tour through a painting and pointing out things to notice along the way." [Working out a Painting, by Colleen Browning].
This painting: "Azaleas by the Bay" exhibits my excitement to be back out painting after the winter. I was satisfied with the composition but I had to adjust my values to make it work. The sky and water were bluer but for the sake of the painting I lightened them in order to keep the most saturated color on the azaleas, my central focus.
