3. That is what is called an environmental portrait. It tells a story.

Note how the black stripe pulls the eye to the younger boy's face.

One thing that will help is learning the rule of threes. Also notice the boys form a triangle. Triangles are good. Think the many paintings of the Madonna and Child.
