CHAPTER VII
THE CHARACTER AND NATURE OF LINES
order to understand more fully power and force in lines when placed on a picture plane, we will analyze the "nature of lines."
When we have a dot, we have a perfectly stationary effect.
When the dot is extended into line, we have "move ment."
Movement is an element having both direction and a degree of rapidity.
Its direction explains itself.
Its rapidity will increase in direct ratio to its length from the dot forming the starting-point.
This long line conveys the sense of rapidity. If we wish to make it slower we can make it shorter, because the momentum gained is not so great.
