By: M. C. Escher Fragments
By: Moises Levy This painting uses many bright colors to make the painting come to life. Bright, vibrant colors are used in the sky to make it seem like the sky is alive. You can assume the artist wanted to create a feeling of warmth and love because he uses these warm colors. He uses the darker colors like green and blue to contrast the bright pink. Because of the contrast my eye is drawn to the Eiffel Tower and the other, lighter, buildings. The hue and value of each color seems to be changing as the colors mix and blend. When I first look at this painting I notice all the different textures. Everything in the painting looks gritty, but certain elements and pieces appear smoother or choppier. When I look at the leaves I can immediately tell that they are going to be rough to the touch because of how big the dots are. When I look at the clothing of the people it's easy to see that it is smooth because the dots in the picture are so fine. The artist does this same thing to give each element in the painting texture. The appearance of a surface or something in a drawing or painting Creates the mood of a painting The two-dimensional area
that objects take up The artists begins the painting by creating plenty of negative space to contrast the image. This makes the image look larger. He also uses placement to affect the painting. By making the images at the foreground larger they appear closer. Also, there is more detail in the objects in the foreground which makes the viewer feel they are closer. The painter also makes the parallel lines formed by the dock come to a point. This creates the illusion that the dock is getting further away. All of these elements are used to make it appear the dock is moving further into the distance. Used to show direction. Used to
communicate moods and feelings.
Used to create texture In this painting lines are very important because there is little color to provide detail. Short, sharp lines are used to show the leaves in the trees. While long jagged lines are used to represent the tire tracks. The absence of lines is just as important. There are no lines in the pond. This is done to make you believe the water is not moving. The artist even goes into enough detail to give the shoe prints lines. Many parallel lines running the width of the shoe give you an image of the tread of the shoe. All of these elements are important when providing detail and texture to a painting. To me, this painting looks like a person walking through a city with bright neon signs everywhere. Even though there are no 3-D shapes, there are plenty of overlapping triangles, squares and circles to give the painting depth. The blocky shapes stand out to me more, that's why I first see the man when I look at the picture. There is only one set of wavy lines in the top left corner which makes me think that might be an air vent or a symbol for smoke. Element of art that refers to the three
dimensional – having length,
width and depth
