Texture, Motion, and Space
This painting shows many elements of art. The technique of where the horizon line is placed was well thought out because it is not right in the middle of the piece. You can see the textures on the surface of the painting because of shadows that they bring. You can also see motion of the giraffe bending it's neck down. The negative space of the picture would be the implied sunset behind the giraffe and the little girl. I feel that this painting is very serene and overall really calming.
