Principles of Design:
reoccurrence of the same use of an element twice or more. For
example multiple uses of: the same form of a cube, the same
yellow, or the same gritty texture. Repetition can create a
of movement. It may also add to the unity of an artwork.
Repetition may be described in terms of pattern or rhythm.
in terms of art is
the repeated alternation of the same element. For example,
red/yellow/blue - red/yellow/blue, or straight

the positive spaces of the trees, and the negative spaces in between
them. Moving horizontally across the brown trunk there is a
of light and dark values giving texture and form. The texture

The same hue of yellow is repeated in the fairies.
