Balancing on the sea

Tom Long has created a well balanced, decorative drawing...breaking the visual plane in the upper left hand corner pushes out and into the "real" world from the visual imaginary narrative of blues, oranges and texture...The main character, leaning to the right...unstable and contrasting the flowing organic, liquid colors

The activity left of the picture plane is balancing that intense pulling shapes and orange line work bookend the left and right sides of the visual is also spread around and visually grouped to tighten down the entire picture plane...pattern and texture, create a decorative mood...the placement and movement counter this energy and move, visually, into the unstable...teetering and bobbing.
