Movement, one of the principles of design, is concerned with the way shapes, lines, colors and forms direct the eye around a composition or interact with each other to suggest movement.
Put it into Practice
Look closely at this print by Francisco de Goya (Spanish, 1746-1828). Notice how Goya has used line to both create the illusion of movement and also to move your eye around the composition. Which do you think is stronger - the illusion of movement or the directive movement around the image? Why?
