One type of line on this list that can be found in art is the diagonal line. This is often associated with running, with moving across the piece. While the other lines aren’t explicitly in art, there can be imaginary lines (IE one subject making eye contact with another), and there can be contour lines. These are often the lines that create shadows on a subject or in a background.

However, the other two most common types of lines are not on this list. They are horizontal and vertical lines. Almost everything we see is made up of horizontal, vertical, or diagonal lines. There are also curved lines, but those have their own properties. Horizontal lines create feelings of rest, and vertical lines create feelings of stagnation.
