Focal Point / Emphasis
- The visual accent, stress, or sense of importance created in an artwork by
the color, size, shape, and placement of an object or area; the area or object to which the viewer's attention is drawn. Focal point is positive space or shape surrounded by negative space or shape.
Contrast- Differences in color, shape, scales, proportions to make a statement or to draw attention
- The use of different elements of art to add interest to an artwork.
Rhythm / Movement
- A sense of movement achieved by the repetition of one or more elements of
art, such as colors, lines, shapes, or forms in an artwork. Movement also relates to the movement of the eye through the painting.
Scale / Size
