Principles of art: Balance

Principles of art: Balance

The visual elements of a composition should feel balanced and stable. Imbalance causes the viewer to feel disturbed.

Balance can be achieved in three ways:

  1. Symmetry, where both sides of the composition have the same elements in the same position, such as the two sides of a face.
  2. Asymmetry, where the composition is balanced by the contrast of any of the elements of art. For example, a large circle on one side might be balanced by a small square on the other side.
  3. Radial symmetry, where the elements are equally spaced around a central point.
