Last night we covered the six Distal Cues for creating depth within a composition (see menu above for more info). Amelia has created a very rich and mysterious image. The value range consists of mostly low key values suggesting a dark environment possibly naturally illuminated by the moon shining through a window. Her mark-making is expressive but does not dismiss the cross-contours of the objects. The table edge activates the negative space while adding a sense of the unknown leaving the viewer to wonder what lies down below.
