What do diagonal lines suggest? Suggest action, movement, and excitement
What is space? The area provided for a particular purpose Can have 2 dimensions or 3 dimensions
What are the four types of rhythm? gradation,radiation,repetition and continuous line.
What is asymmetrical balance? Example? Asymmetrical Balance- Parts of the design are not identical but are equal in visual weight. ex. a table with simloiar items the same lamps or vases but different picture frames and books but the same size.
What is the difference between horizontal and vertical lines? horizontal lines lead the eye from left to right and Suggests informality and restfulness vertical lines lead the eye up adding more height, formality, and strength
