Notan is the underlying value structure of a painting in its simplest form. The theory of Notan is that artists can mine the interaction between light and dark space to create captivating works of art. These designs are a way in which you would arrange the darks, lights in a painting. If you do this design well in your painting, it will have a strong effect. Its origins are in Japanese art and is tied to Zen Buddhism, a school of thought which strives for balance and minimalism, in life as well as aesthetics.
