- b The intentional arrangement of visual elements on which artists base their work. It is often synonymous with the term composition.

- the distillation of the image to the basic essentials for clarity of presentation

5 True/False questions
value distribution → a departure from the accepted perception of a from or object, often manipulating conventional proportions
approximate symmetry → Having unlike, or non-corresponding appearances- "without symmetry."
implied line → Implied lines (subjective lines) are those that dim, fade, stop, and/or disappear. The missing portion of the line is implied to continue and is visually completed by the observer as the
curvilinear shapes → A formless and indistinct shape without obvious edges, like, for example, a cloud.
background → in a landscape, the space we see in the distance--the sky, mountains, or distant hills. In a still life or interior portrait, it is the area behind the subject
