Rowing Shell Stern Composition
Philadelphia, Pennsylvania

I really liked the contrast of colors in this composition. The bright yellow shell made the green really... well... green. When I was studying art, one concept that they taught was that motion could be captured more easily through diagonal lines. Coincidentally, this was shown through a painting of a rower by Thomas Eakins, an American Realist. Through much of my other work, this composition style is explored and I have been very happy with my results.
