open 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

middle gray → On a value scale or within a composition containing numerous values, the midpoint value found between any two given values. Middle gray is a mixture that visually represents 50% of a specific tint and 50% of a specific shade. Middle gray is considered neutral-meaning that the eye is at total rest- the cones and rods of the eye are inactive-when it looks at middle gray. Typically middle gray is made from black and white, but there are other middle mixtures that are neutral such as the middle mixtures of a complementary scale
negative space → Where the creation of elements, or their combination produces a objective or non-objective figure or field against a ground.
