Paradise Lost: Page 9

At this point Satan realizes he can corrupt man (God's greatest creation). He finds the picture of Adam and Eve amidst the mess he created and decides they are his new target. One thing to talk about artistically with this page. There is a design theory out there that talks about amounts of gray, black, and white that should be on a page to create focus. If you think about each as a paint bucket, there should be a gallon of one, a quart of another, and a cup of the last. This page is a good example of that theory. There is a gallon of black, a quart of white, and a cup of gray. This creates focus in areas where they overlap and/or are surrounded by a varying tone.
