Curly Kale

Curly Kale
20x36 Mixed Media
The undulating leaves of  purple kale make me think of a dancer's swirling skirt swaying with her movements. I intended for the composition to control the viewer's eye in and out of the swirling forms. This painting was one in a series completed for my thesis show. I played with various design systems within the book by Jay Hambidge and the concepts of dynamic symmetry. I taught myself a lot about composition while working on my thesis. There is not enough emphasis put on composition in the schools, it is much more about expression.  Thanks for viewing my blog! If you are interested in purchasing this painting please contact me. Prints of this painting are available at ,
