Beauty beautiful


Subjective words, these are commonly used to describe pleasing visual responses and often used to express a positive reaction to natural phenomena or to a work of art. These words result from "the satisfaction the mind derives from contemplating any image that has been organized and ordered into a unified whole." Components of the 'whole' in either nature or art expression include shape, color, line, tone, proportion and atmospherics.
