I chose Composition as my universal design principle because I feel that it is one of the most important factors of a piece of 2D art, and I chose to focus on the rule of thirds.
I chose this work because I like the way the artist composed the painting so that the focus is the bright white of the house sitting upon the hill in the corner in comparison to the foliage.
I chose this work because I really like the way that the artist captured the landscape in such detail, but still manages to bring the focus to the two people overlooking the landscape.
I chose this image to represent the rule of thirds because of the burst of color that the foliage on the tree contrasts to the muted colors that appear around it, a bright orange versus a dull yellow.
I chose this painting because I like how the artist draws attention to the people within the image by using brighter colors on only the clothing and using the rule of thirds.
I chose this image because of the fact that there are multiple points of focus throughout the painting, but your focus is still drawn to the man on the white horse. There also seems to be a story that could be told.
I chose this painting because of the way that the artist uses the rule of thirds to feature the artists that were painted into the scene, while still being able to capture the landscape.
I like how the artist uses the lines that break down the rule of thirds to contain the focus of the painting, while still showcasing the landscape.

I chose this photograph because I like that the artist used rule of thirds as well as the natural landscape in order to really direct your focus.
I chose this photograph because I was really drawn to the architecture and the way that the artist used the structure to direct your focus up onto the structure.
I chose this image because it is so different from the other pieces that I have included within my choices. I also like how your eye goes over the various pieces of paper that are in the image before settling on the yellow strip.
