Just as we like good rhythm in music, we also like it in the visual arts. Chaos is generally unappealing, so patterns that bring order to a scene are engaging. Rhythm is the repetition of line, shape or colour. It is soothing and implies connectedness by creating structure and movement in an image, either bold or subtle. When it is repeated enough, the rhythm becomes a pattern. Sometimes I give myself a conceptual challenge, such as going out and finding subjects that show rhythm, so that I am considering ideas, rather than things. It can cause me to see differently and more creatively.
