Composition Considerations

The 13 week Composition class
"Look Here, Don't Look There"
 I've been taking with
Mark Daniel Nelson
is ending this week.

We've been talking about leading the viewer's eye 
around the painting intentionally or  
"manipulating the viewer's expectations"

My intention was to bring you to the girl's hat, 
then to the light on his hat (surrounded by that dark shadow),  
then up to the flag that points you back the main hat! 

 I'm somewhat new to thinking this much about 
designing my paintings. 
It's confounding and thrilling.
