Transcript of Principles of Art: Contrast

Principles of Art: Contrast Definition of Contrast: Contrast is referred to the difference in two related elements such as color, shape, value, type, texture, alignment, direction and movement. The more contrast is shown the more a viewer’s attention is obtained. If there is little contrast in the painting, then there will be too much similarity and the art piece would become more monotonous. This is to say that the design may seem dull.
