Last fall I did a series of paintings using aspen tree shadows to study Edgar Payne's forms of composition. After our recent snow I went for a walk and took photos. It was way to cold for plein air work. This piece combines his radiating and diagonal lines arrangements. Had I shown more of the shadow from the hidden tree on the right, you would easily see the radiating lines. But, since that's not visible this is almost diagonal. I think combining arrangements would be okay with Edgar Payne. He stated: "it is well to improvise without considering any particular form or arrangement."
