Monkey Series 10

Monkey Series 10
One of my favorite techniques is to have a partial image in one of my collages.  Here you see the last half of a monkey.  I like this method because the eye automatically wants to complete the image.  It is also a movement trick because your eye is drawn, in this case, to the right after first stopping off at the main focal point, the woman.  I believe it is drawn to the right because of the desire to see what is happening to a recognizable figure, the monkey.  Since the monkey is obviously in movement that helps with movement within the composition.

before I was able to study it, it seemed vintage to me?
