Sunday Sketchbook: Dominican Republic

The men of the village play an intense game of dominoes, as serious as it is fun, under the laundry.

Susan, I love the composition of this one. The strong diagonal of the clothesline is perfectly balanced by the rooster! I like the way the subject you write about is hidden, it makes me want to peer deeper into your sketch. Wonderful!

Thanks, Christine. I'm working on a more developed watercolor with this composition. I like the way the figures are hidden under the laundry, too.

every single area is wonderfully designed. That's what it's all about. This is beautiful.
