Exercise – Diagonals

Exercise - Diagonals

Here we are looking at diagonals. We can see in the pavement how a zig zag creates a tension in four directions. In the pylon we can see how our eye is led up the structure and then across the cables bringing our eye across the scene. In the portrait the diagonals are drawing our eye up to the face of the girl. Finally the diagonals are used as perspective drawing our eye along the river to the distant boat.
