For every geometric shape there is a corresponding geometric form. ShapeForm SquareCube TriangleCone, pyramid, triangular prism CircleSphere or Cylinder RectangleRectangular prism OvalEgg DiamondDiamond or Prism Heart
Space Definition one- The area around, above, between, below and within things.
Positive Space is area within what artist creates! (black area) Negative Space is the area left over. (white area)
Definition Two Creating the illusion of depth in an artwork. Depth is making an object appear to be 3-d. This is what you should focus on when you describe space in an artwork!
Foreground- the objects at the front of the artwork. Middle ground- the objects in the middle area of the artwork. Background- the objects farthest way in the artwork.
Two Types of Perspective Atmospheric Perspective- blurring objects, making them darker, or changing their size to make them look farther away. 1-Point Perspective- Using diagonal lines to make objects appear to go back into space.
3 Parts to 1- Point Perspective Horizon Line- Line where earth meets the sky. Vanishing Point- point on the horizon line where all lines meet. Orthogonal- Diagonal lines that meet at vanishing point.
Value Value is the lightness and darkness of a color. Value is actually a property of color. When you discuss value you also should discuss color.
Value Tints are created when you add white to a color For example- red + white= pink. Shades are created when you add black to a color For example- red + black = burgundy. A set of color values is the base color (like red) with its tint and shade- for example red, pink (tint) and burgundy (shade.)
Color! Color is what the eye sees when light is reflected off of an object. Pure color only comes from pure white light. Without light, there is no color!
Color cont… Color travels in white light in the color spectrum. When white light is passed through a prism you get the colors separated- ROYGBIV.
Color Vocabulary Hue is the name of a color. Intensity is the brightness or dullness of a color. The color wheel is a tool used for organizing color. Color Groups/Color Schemes are families of colors that have similarities.
