Rabatment in Fine Art

Rabatment of the rectangle is a structural tool that leads to unity, harmony and balance. Place your main subject or image inside a vertical or horizontal square using 3 of the edges of your support's rectangle. Rabatment can be either on the left, right, upper or lower sides. I put my focal point in this area and also follow all the guides I have written about placement and elements for focal points. There are several articles about rabatment on the internet and you can do a google search for "rabatment". Read Dianne Mize's article "Placing our Images: Rabatment" and the article on www. emptyeasel .com.
