Why Have a Dominant Shape

When we look at a scene regardless if it is from life or from a photo it is not easy to pick only 1 focal point.  I like to focus on a dominant shape and bring more emphasis and clarity for the viewer. I hope this will help you narrow down complex scenes in nature or in your photos.

In this short video, I will explain this concept on my own painting.
