The Beachcomber (bottom right) and Beauty and the Sea (top left) are examples of my “guiding” the viewer to focus on the horse by “softening” the ocean in both.
On the other hand, Exuberance (top right) and Beauty Unadorned (bottom left) are opposite of that. I was interested in making the whole painting appealing and interesting.
The artist really is able to “lead” the viewer – again – without words…
