Variety: This picture demonstrates the principle of variety very well, because it is fairly large, there are many different things to be focused on, and it demonstrates other principles as well.
Movement:This piece demonstrates the principle of movement because it displays a busy scene where many people are rushing around to where the viewers eye is directed towards what the people are doing.
Emphasis: This piece is an example of this principle because its focal point is the two birds, and those birds are dominant over the rest of the background.
Contrast: Half of this whole piece is accentuating the contrast of the city, and one side of the artwork is opposite the other. Both sides use two very different colors alongs side each other.
