Balance and Focal Point: State what the visual (or compositional) weight (or balance) is for each of these paintings (symmetrical, asymmetrical, or radial). Next, state your assessment of what or where the focal point is for each work. Submit this in list form, not as an essay. You may use just the illustration numbers instead of the title. [i.e. fig. #8-4 = x balance; focal point is x]
