Something Different

It's still pastel, but certainly different from woods. A friend gave me "Watercolor by Design" by Marianne Brown for Christmas and last night I started reading it. It describes a dozen different composition schemes, using many non-objective paintings for examples. This morning when I woke up I had the beginnings of this painting in my mind. Now, which way is up??

The second one, IMHO.

I vote for the second one as the best orientation. This one puts me in mind of a depiction by one of the Southwestern tribes of a sunrise/moonrise or some astrological event. My realistic mind always seems to be looking for something depicted in abstract paintings and this time that popped out at me immediately.

Very nice design going here.
