The artwork is not in 90 degree angle, we can see the line curve upward behind the human. As you look at the drawing the artist mostly focused on the “Thief” upper body than the lower body. There is more color on the upper body than the lower. The pedestal the “Thief” is on looks a bit faded.

 

 

Landscape, Anthony Van Dyck, 1599-1641

The Landscape shows texture. The artist showed more color on the right side than the left. If you visual this image in real life it seems like the sun is more toward the right side where there is more emphasis is drawn more there.

 

The Conversion of Saint Paul, Wolf Huber, 1480-1553

The space is evenly spread out in this artwork. The lines on this detail of work is very fascinating where the artist carefully took time to let the audience see every line of the image.

The Crypt of a Church with Two Men Sleeping, Hendrick van Steenwijck the Younger , 1580-1649

Hendrick shows a lot of creativity in this artwork. We see light in the center and where ever the light touches we see there is more to the painting itself. The contrast of the  church shows hidden area where the light touches upon them. The light shows more than we see where you can see the hidden area such as one on the far left. The light also show the Two men sleeping in the church as mention on the caption.

The art work shows a repetition of the color yellow throughout the painting. This image shows a lot of details. When you take a look at the color of the river you can see where its traveling to and from. The color also draws your attention to the groups of men in front of the artwork. You can see they are individually standing differently from one another.

[Wheat], Eugene Atet, 1857-1927

We see the line in the art work entangle with one another. The background color makes the image look calm. You can mostly see the all of the wheat in the image because of how the photographer took the picture. The wheat are not separate from one another at all.

Aurora Taking Leave of Tithonus, Francesco Solimena , 1657-1747

The light on the upper left shines through the entire painting. The artist made Aurora the center of attention with the torch. The light touches upon every one in the picture. If you look closer you can there is a baby near Aurora as there clouds behind her. The way how everyone is standing in the painting is not all vertical, they mostly have a curve.
