How does texture affect color? Smooth surfaces reflect more light making them appear brighter and lighter. Rough surfaces absorb more light making them appear darker and less intense.
What do curved lines suggest? They add a soft, graceful affect to design.
What is the difference between horizontal, vertical, and radial balance? In horizontal left and right parts are equal. In vertical top and bottom parts are equal. In radial balance elements radiate out from design.
What do diagonal lines suggest? They suggest action, movement, and excitement.
What is space? The area provided for a particular purpose.
What are the four types of rhythm? Graduation, radiation, repitition, and continuous line.
What is asymmetrical balance? Example? Parts of a design are not identical but are equal in visual weight. Example-placing a bunch of pillows on one side of the couch and a table on the other side to balance it out.

What happens when you use a continuous line? It creates a line for the eye to follow.
What is another name for symmetrical balance? Formal balance
