This Painting has a unity of circles and also a repetition of small, medium and large circles with a variety of colors. This painting has good rhythm with circles. It does not have a visual balance which makes it asymmetrical. I think the larger circle emphasis this painting. There is no equal space, therefor has uneven negative space and it is off the center. There is a portion of many circles different shaped circles.
