Most of the time, a focal point that is not exactly center is preferred. By placing an object or element just off center, you can create a focal point through placement without affecting the aesthetics of the work.

How do I create movement?:

How do I create movement? One type of movement found in artwork deals with the way a viewer’s eye moves through the work of art. This movement is dictated by the placement of objects inside of the picture plane. Placement of the objects will lead and guide a viewer’s eye.
