Transcript: Harmony By María Carrascal ¿What is Harmony? In basic words, harmony uses emphasis, color, shape, form, value, space, texture to combine similar or related elements. Harmony Examples Examples different tones of blue are used to show the water and the fish. This, sows harmony because the same pallet is used for distinct shapes. negative space is used, two exact shapes in different color are located in the same position (therefore, they are parallel) Unity unity- separate parts working together oneness, stability, organized, easy, work together Unity Examples Examples The same shape is shown in different locations with different colors. In this image, there is the same size of the women in all four. Also, the hands are all equally positioned. The skin color of one women, indicates the negative space, and the focal point are the woman. Variety "Harmony and variety play tug-of-war in a composition. Too much harmony is boring while too much variety is aimless and incomprehensible." When an artist places different visual elements next to one another: - straight lines next to curvy lines - organic shapes among geometric shapes - bright colors next to dull colors diversity, mixture, change, variation, complexity, interesting Variation Examples Examples The image of the trees shows the same shape of tree shown in distinct colors. In image two, the same food is shown but, again, in different tones of red. Examples Lastly, let's analyze two pictures, explain if it includes harmony, unity and/or variety, and their advantages and disadvantages Examples Examples advantages- same pattern, same pallet, different shapes, texture, oneness disadvantages- no variation, no complexitynor diversity advantages- organized, oneness, different colors, texture, little variation, stability disadvantages- boring, same shape
