Rhythmic Relationships: Where There's Bras There's Brass

Curves can be graceful, opulent, gay or sad. They will form rhythmic patterns if parallel to the picture plane, or describe space if receding from it, like bras that pass in the light.
A curving line is a flowing line (even when it’s concrete), for your eyes will smoothly follow a curve without pause. Curves also relate easily to one another in forming rhythmic relationships, but an arrangement limited to curves only is apt to appear weak and insipid without the assistance of - stronger straight lines – a lead.
