I am drawn to thinkers. Folks deep in thought. Contemplation. I am drawn to deep images. I am drawn to meaning and purpose. My purpose for this painting was to capture the awesome and ornate clothing and also the expression on this gentleman’s face. My aim as an artist is to capture the mood or read of an image with design principles in mind so that the image is pleasing. The diagonal line of black creates movement, whereas the block of black in the upper right corner allows the eye to rest and focus on the tilted head.
