One of the elements of composition is line. In this painting of "Docked", the dominant lines are the verticals: mast, dock, pilings. The secondary lines are horizontal: dock, far shore. The tension lines are oblique and found in the distant sailboat and the foreground dock. They provide pointers, leading to the focal point.

Consciously design your composition with the use of line.
