Sometimes I like to do a minimalist composition, one where there are really very few, simple shapes and a small focal point. In the case of this painting almost the whole scene is made up of one large light area of the wall and one shadow area. The challenge is to allow each of the 2 shapes to have enough variation so it is restful but not boring. The diagonal line of the shadow's edge is interesting to me, and especially the shadows of the plant.
