Harmonious elements have a logical relationship or progression - in some way they work together and complement each other.

    Most children's books have a limited number of characters. Textures may be rough or slick, firm or spongy, hard or soft, jagged or smooth. The process was extremely labor-intensive and expensive though as the artist would have to prepare a separate plate for each color used. In a still picture such as a painting or photograph, where nothing is actually moving, various strategies can be used to give the viewer a sense of movement and speed, or to move the viewer's eye through the work.

    The process was extremely labor-intensive and expensive though as the artist would have to prepare a separate plate for each color used. Harmony and Unity.

Sendak's attention to detail is apparent in the millions of tiny ink lines he added to show the hairs on the Wild Things.
