Slanting Lines and Shapes To Create Movement in Mixed Media Art

Sometimes all it takes is a slight shift of some of your shapes to create the suggestion of movement or energy in an otherwise still collage.  You will see that I tilted the large greenish- grey shape on the left to add some oomph to the composition. It doesn't take much to accomplish an important variance in the orientation of shapes and lines. If I had slanted too many shapes I would be back where I started from with a monotonous composition. It is the importance of surprise that matters. Also important to note is that once I made this change, everything else seemed to feel quite right.
