Lines In Baseball

Even though they might not be visible, lines can always be found within paintings. The image I chose is the perfect example of this. There are no drawn out lines, but there are many inside the picture. The 2 men near the 3rd base bag make a triangle with their body positions. The lines are diagnals which most commonly show action, which in this case is true. Also there is a horizon by the bleachers of where the sky meets the stadium wall. The lines in this painting are NOT actual. They can be considered implied creating implied shapes in the case of the men making the triangle. The horizon is an example of direction lines. By seeing this line you can see that the ground ends and now the sky is starting.You can also see the edges of the men in this painting. Great painting to analyze because the lines aren't obvious and it gets you thinking.
