Like with the previous composition, I chose another upwards triangle that conveys a sense of upwards motion. However, for this composition, I chose to keep that upwards motion and not allow for it to become stagnant in order to portray the motion of the human body in the picture I had originally taken. And similar to my first composition of the body in motion, I chose a strong vertical line to ground the composition and make it stand out, just like the subject in my original picture had done. I used the dots to surround the triangle and create a further sense of motion by placing them all in random areas that made the dots seem dynamic. I once again tried to recreate Kandinsky’s techniques by making the dots near the top seem more condensed, thus creating a motion upwards. I also arranged the dots on the left half in a noticeably different way than the right half and chose a different number of dots for the two halves so that while the picture looks balanced, it does not confuse the viewer and make them wonder as to whether the two halves should be different or not, as Arnheim suggested.
