Compton's strengths:

  • Shape making variety (interest, curiosity and painstaking drawing leads to great visual interest).
  • Soft edges (break hard shapes, create opposition and create smooth transitions that move your eye through the work).
  • Value distribution (the same value appears throughout giving a strong sense of unity).
  • Portrayal of rocks -- Compton is a great resource for treatment of rock forms.
