Three of our instructors have very different names for their "FOCAL POINT"- that part of a painting that pulls one into the work, the center of interest or the main subject. Ellen White calls it the bling, Millie Gosch, the bride, and Nancy Franke, the hero. When designing your painting keep in mind what you want your main focus to be and make that statement. The focal point is usually that area of the painting that has the highest contrast and the hardest edges. Everything else will play second fiddle to it and support the bling, the bride or the hero.
