Monday Challenge 12/24/12 Unity

"Relating the design elements to the idea being expressed in a painting reinforces the principal of unity.eg. a painting with an active aggressive subject would work better with a dominant oblique direction, course, rough texture, angular lines etc. whereas a quiet passive subject would benefit from horizontal lines, soft texture and less tonal contrast.
Unity in a painting also refers to the visual linking of various elements of the work." The definition is from artist John Lovett's website.
Post your finished layouts in the General Message Board gallery.
Here's mine: Vacation
I tried to use the concept, as expressed above, of a quiet and passive subject (the photos) benefiting from horizontal lines, soft texture and low tonal contrast. I kept my palette of colors limited.
