In an organized essay of 200-300 words, discuss, describe, and analyze how the artist uses shape and line in Fukagawa Lumberyards. Is there a dominant line? If so, what is it and what makes it the dominant line? Does the artist use horizontal lines? Where are they in the composition? Describe this — use directionals –left, right, center, top, bottom. Verticals? Where? Describe this. Diagonals? Where? Describe this. What about shape? Is the composition balanced? If so, what line/shape makes it balanced? If not, why not? Use these questions to help you formulate your conclusions and back up your conclusions with details you describe from the composition.
