This painting by Kerima Swain shows excellent perspective drawing as the underlying foundation of a highly original composition. A refined palette of warm and cool hues support a long visual sweep from the top of the stone steps in the narrow passge, across a sunny harbor, and onto to the opposite bank. The composition is fascinating as it draws the eye into an trapeze-like swing from the starting point to a forward motion down and up through the canvas. I also love how parts of the subject matter can be enjoyed as arrangement of abstract shapes in soft, complimentary orange and blue tones.
