11 Add pho­to­re­al­is­tic fo­cus to the fo­cal point

Com­po­si­tion is not just about 2D con­sid­er­a­tions; it’s also about the Z di­men­sion of depth and fo­cus. Even though I’m paint­ing a scene that could never be pho­tographed, I try to com­pose the scene with a pho­tog­ra­pher’s sen­si­bil­ity. I use shal­low fo­cus to evoke the im­pres­sion of wildlife pho­tog­ra­phy, since this paint­ing is to be pub­lished in a mag­a­zine that’s mostly il­lus­trated with wildlife pho­tos. The back­ground is dark and cool and way out of fo­cus, and the crushed plants and the egg in the fore­ground are also blurred.
