Elements of Art Line Shape Value Form ColorSpace Texture
Line Line is a continuous mark made by a moving point. – Contour line: the outline of an object – Implied line: an invisible line suggested by several points in an artwork and connected by the eye. Line can be used to create more complex shapes or to lead your eye from one area to another.
Shape Shapes are created when lines are combined together to form an enclosed area. – 2-Dimensional – Geometric Shapes with strong lines and angles (circles, squares) – Organic Irregular shapes found in nature – Free-form Abstract shapes.
Form Similar to Shapes only they are 3-Dimensional and have volume. – Ex: Cube, Cylinder, Sphere. – Have length, width, and depth.
Space The area between, around, and in objects. – Positive space Area inside object – Negative space Area outside object Can be used to create depth. – Foreground, Middle-ground, and Background Increasing and decreasing the amount of space around an object affects the way we view that object.
The surface quality that can be seen or felt. – Actual Texture How something actually feels (smooth, rough, soft). This type of texture is usually found in sculptures or textile art. – Implied Texture How something appears to feel. A drawing of a rock may appear to feel rough and hard but it is as smooth as the paper.
Value The lightness or darkness of a color. – Tint: lighter values – Shade: darker values Value is used to show depth.
Color Has three properties: – Hue the name of the color (such as red, blue, etc). – Intensity The purity of strength of the color such as the brightness or dullness. – Value The lightness or darkness of the color.
Primary Colors – The basis for making most other colors. – They cannot be mixed. – Red, Yellow, Blue Yellow Blue Red
Secondary Colors Secondary Colors are made by mixing two primary colors. Orange, Green, Purple. Yellow Green Blue Purple (violet) Red Orange
Intermediate Colors Also known as Tertiary Colors. Made by mixing a Primary Color and a Secondary Color. Name of the color is a combo of the two colors used. Primary color always goes first. Red-Orange, Yellow-Orange, Yellow-Green, Blue-Green, Blue-Violet, Red-Violet. Yellow Yellow - Green Green Blue- green Blue Blue-violet Purple Red-violet Red Red- orange Orange Yellow- Orange Intermediate Colors
Color Schemes Complementary Colors are colors that are opposite each other on the color wheel. When placed next to each other they look bright. When mixed together they neutralize each other. Complementary Colors Yellow Green Blue Purple (violet) Red Orange
Color Schemes Warm colors are on one side of the color wheel. They give the feeling of warmth like fire. Red-violet, Red, Red- orange, Orange, Yellow- orange, Yellow. Warm Colors Yellow Yellow - Green Green Blue- green Blue Blue-violet Purple Red-violet Red Red- orange Orange Yellow- Orange
Color Schemes Cool colors are on the other side of the color wheel. They give the feeling of coolness like water or cool grass. Yellow-green, Green, Blue-green, Blue, Blue- violet, Violet. Cool Colors Yellow Yellow - Green Green Blue- green Blue Blue-violet Purple Red-violet Red Red- orange Orange Yellow- Orange
Color Schemes Analogous colors are colors that are next to each other on the color wheel. Ex: Yellow-orange, Yellow, Yellow-green Analogous Colors Yellow Yellow - Green Green Blue- green Blue Blue-violet Purple Red-violet Red Red- orange Orange Yellow- Orange
Color Schemes A Triadic color scheme is where three equally spaced colors on the color wheel are used. Primary Triad – red, yellow, blue Secondary Triad – orange, green, purple Triadic Color Scheme Yellow Yellow - Green Green Blue- green Blue Blue- violet Purple Red- violet Red Red- orange Orange Yellow- Orange
Color Schemes A Monochromatic Color Scheme is where one color is used but in different values and intensities. Monochromatic Colors
Principles of Art Balance Harmony Emphasis Movement Proportion Variety Unity Rhythm
Variety Refers to the differences in the work. You can achieve variety by using different shapes, textures, colors, and values in your artwork.
Balance The way the elements are arranged to create a feeling of stability in a work. Symmetrical – When one side mirrors the other side Asymmetrical – When one side does not reflect the other side.
Emph a sis Emphasis is created when the artist contrasts colors, textures, or shapes to direct your viewing towards a particular part of the image.
Movement Movement is the way a viewer’s eye is directed to move through a composition, often to areas of emphasis. It can be directed by lines, contrasting shapes, or colors.
Rhythm Rhythm is a visual beat. Rhythm is a regular repetition of elements to produce the look and feel of movement. It is often achieved through the placement of repeated components which invite the viewer's eye to jump rapidly or glide smoothly from one to the next.
Harmony Harmony is achieved by using similar elements throughout the work. It gives an uncomplicated look to your work.
Pattern Pattern is the repetition of a shape, form, or texture across a work of art.
Proportion The comparative relationship of one part to another with respect to size, quantity, or degree; SCALE.
Unity When all the elements and principles work together to create a pleasing image. All the parts equal a whole.
