Imagine equally dividing an image into thirds on both the horizontal and vertical axes.
The lines that intersect around the central rectangle indicate the points that capture the majority of a viewer’s attention.
The rule of thirds is a principle of composition in art that states that an image should be imagined as divided into nine equal parts by two equally-spaced horizontal lines and two equally-spaced vertical lines, and that important compositional elements should be placed along these lines or their intersections.
The rule provides a format for creating balance and interest in images. It has been described as “a natural law” for the human eye when it perceives images.
The rule of thirds does not specify any particular size or shape for the divisions, and it is often used in conjunction with other compositional techniques. It has been applied to media other than painting and photography, including music, film, television, and digital art.
This artwork serves as an illustration of the rule of thirds in action. The spectator’s attention is led around it rather than directly to the center by the absence of any element in the exact center.
Make a statement with this amazing work of art, printed on thick, durable, matte paper. The matte black frame that’s made from wood from renewable forests adds an extra touch of class.
