More ways to create the illusion of space in art !Bird Baylor creates spaceHere, Laura Numeroff used by making objects clear inperspective and overlap to create the front and fuzzy in thespace back. This is calledatmospheric perspective. 16. Element #6Texture Definition: Texture is the surface quality or feel of an object, its smoothness roughness, etc. Actual textures can be felt with the fingers while simulated textures are created by the artists to look like the surface has the specific texture. Actual Texture (tree bark) Simulated Texture (snail illustration) 17. Check out the different ways artists can use texture!Collage is one way This artist createdto create texture texture with words onlike illustrator Jon top of the face.Sciezscka does. Van Goghs paint strokes create a texture on the canvas 18. Principle #1 Balance Definition: Balance is the way the elements of artare arranged to create a feeling of stability in awork; a pleasing or harmonious arrangement orproportion of parts or areas in a design orcomposition. Three Types of BalanceSYMMETRICAL RADIALASSYMETRICAL"I find sometimes I may want to end up with subtlety, but I have to start out boldly. I think you have toexaggerate to get it across. . . . All I can say is that you have to lean over a little to the left, and overdoit a bit, and then come back into balance, that ever-important balance.- Andrew Wyeth (1917-),American realist painter. 19. SYMMETRICAL Balance Diego Rivera- Flower Day Van Eyck- The Arnolfini Wedding The mirror image from one side toanother. (Can be split down the middle and have two identical sides.) 20. BalanceMariam Sharipo- DelaunayNot equal from one side to another.(Different on each side.) 21. RADIAL BalanceRadial Balance: Occurs when the elements ofdesign come out/radiate from a central point. Like a pinwheel!Buddhists create Mandala (circle) art with sand to show patience. 22. ProportionDefinition: Proportion refers to the harmoniousrelationship of one part to another or to the wholewith respect to size and ratio.You can measure and compare parts to createcorrect proportion. 23. RhythmDefinition: When the regular repetition of particularforms or elements occurs in a work of art, that work issaid to have rhythm. It suggests motion.Repeating shapes in this fencePiet Mondrian- Broadway Boggie Woogiephotograph create rhythm 24. Rhythm (Cond)How does Jackson Pollock create rhythm in his artwork? 25. Rhythm(Cond)Repetition of curvy lines (splatters)Repetition of colors 26. Movement 27. Emphasis 28. Unity 29. VarietyUsing different types of art elements in a picture to create more diversity and interest.Variety makes life more interesting too! 30. These artists use a variety of elementsto create interest in their art.Barron Storrey- line and shapeKandinsky-line, shape, color Jacob Lawrence-shape, color, and theme 31. CompositionThe plan, placement or arrangement of the elements of art .Much like a music composer, artists can create the effects they want byplanning their composition.
