#438 In the studio: Bird anatomy, con't . . .

Please start this bird anatomy series with post #403,  March 10.

I continue to be influenced by oriental art . . . many of my compositions 
demonstrate what the Japanese refer to as "formal sparseness of design".

Asymmetrical composition and negative space allows much to be imagined by the viewer.

The artist controls the visual direction and provides both movement and repose.
Simplicity and understatement allows focus on the subject . . .
an area of profusion or detail may be balanced by a sweeping passage of quiet.
