A shape is a two-dimensional area. Shapes have height and width but not depth.
A shape might be defined by an outline or through contrast with its surroundings, such as through colour or tone.
There are two types of shape:
- Organic - Organic shapes are ones that can be found in nature. For example fruit, vegetables, flowers and shells all have organic shapes.
- Geometric - Geometric shapes are mathematical shapes, such as squares and circles. They are perfect and regular.
