Dominance - Line

Here is a painting with a dominance of oblique lines. "Leland's Lobster Buoys" are a gradation of oblique lines that gradually approach horizontal at the top of the page.

As you have probably realized, several elements and principles are at work in a single painting. This painting also contains: 1.) diminshing repeats 2.) repetition of shape and color 3.) dominance of color. Knowledgeable painters hold several design concepts in their heads while planning and painting a picture.
