Inspired by the compositional studies of Richard Diebenkorn, students made drawings from small, individual still-life arrangements. Although the drawing is unfinished, Luis has started with a very strong compositional arrangement. The two rectangular forms create a funnel-like shape that empties down into the keys. The rings of the keys establish a secondary rhythm hooking upward towards the right. In addition, Luis' use of cropping has allowed him to engage with all four sides of the paper.
