Two dominant lines can start a composition if they cross or touch. Once the horizontal and vertical lines join or intersect, the artist has to find balance in the remaining areas that surround the pivot point of the picture. In the painting below, "White Peony-Tender Thoughts" by Dmitry Kalyuzhny, notice how the dominant vertical and horizontal line divide the image while the rest of the elements balance out the picture as a whole.
