Symmetrical balance refers to balance that is achieved by arranging elements on either side of the center of a composition in an equally weighted manner. Symmetrical balance can be thought of as 50/50 balance or like a mirror image.
What is balance and proportion in art?
Scale and proportion in art are both concerned with size. Proportion refers to the relative size of parts of a whole (elements within an object). We often think of porportions in terms of size relationships within the human body.
What is balance in design?
The principles of design describe the ways that artists use the elements of art in a work of art. Balance is the distribution of the visual weight of objects, colors, texture, and space. If the design was a scale, these elements should be balanced to make a design feel stable.
