5 True/False questions
rhythmn → Drawing several thin (usually parallel) lines close together to create an area of value.
closed composition → The placement of elements in a composition so that they imply completion beyond the boundary of the picture plane, or give the appearance of infinite space
proportion → a departure from the accepted perception of a from or object, often manipulating conventional proportions
one-point perspective → A system of spatial illusion based on the convergence of parallel lines at a single vanishing point, usually on the horizon; only appropriate to interiors or vistas. Within one-point perspective vertical lines remain vertical to the picture plane and horizontal lines remain horizontal to the picture plane
foreshortening → compares elements to one another in terms of size, quantity, or degree of emphasis. It may be expressed as a ratio, or may be a more generalized relativity
