• Balance can be achieved in many ways. One device is colour. A visual equilibrium is established based on the colours utilized in the composition. This picture is an example of asymmetric balance by colour.
  • Note in the first example, the asymmetric balance is obvious, and the artwork achieves equal eye attraction regardless of the lack of colour. In the second example, the colour enhances the quality of the asymmetric balance.
  • Balance by colour is a valuable and unexpected tool. It allows for a greater variety of shapes on either side of a centre axis while achieving equal eye attraction.
