Elements Of Design
By: Group 3
What is Shape?

What are lines?
the word shape refers to a perceptual structure that is designed to give form. This term can also be defined as the visual or the ocular appearance of something or someone that has been designed.
The element of design direction is one of the things that gives an image emotion. The direction the lines are moving whether it be vertical which represents balance and alertness or horizontal which represents calmness and tranquility or diagonal. All have emotional meaning, as well as give the image depth.
Texture photography forces us to look at the world in a different way. It works with colors and inspires our everyday life.

What Do You Mean By Size?
This picture represents size because as you can tell straight from looking at it King Kong is massive in size compared to the humans in the bus. In addition, looking at the background you can tell that King Kong close up is as tall as the mountain from this perspective. This shows that the space is used in a way to make King Kong and the dinosaur look larger than they actually are. Artists use this trick to confuse the brain into making things look large, this works even if you know your being tricked (that's the best part about it);however, many people don't notice this aspect and that's why it is great to implement. Furthermore, the dispute in size is what adds fear to the faces of the humans portrayed in this picture. This is why I found that this picture represents size in the perspective of the artist. All in all, size is an important element of design as it can be used to show emotion in the picture and to give you a perspective of what is happening.
This image uses direction well. The direction of downward spiral does it's job by being a somewhat of an abstract representation of an emotion. The downward motion of the lines can represent spiraling into insanity or the downward spiral into sadness and depression. The direction of the lines also give the image depth and the illusion of a 3D structure.


-Value is the amount of light or dark in a specific area
-Spans from complete whiteness to complete blackness
-Used to put emphasis on an object or event
-Also used to create the illusion of depth in drawings
-Gives pictures a more realistic and diverse feeling
The physical dimensions, proportions, magnitude, or extent of an object; it can also be related to, character, quality, or status of a person or thing especially with reference to importance, relative merit, or correspondence to needs/wants
To see color, you have to have light. When light shines on an object some colors bounce off the object and others are absorbed by it. Our eyes only see the colors that are bounced off or reflected.

Definition of Value
Example 1
Example 2
The picture that I chose, above, is a great representation of color because it contains all the warm and cool colors of the electromagnetic spectrum. When light is reflected through the prism it gives off all of the colors shown above. It even includes a black background, which is the result of absence or complete absorption of light. Colors can also be represented as emotion. For example, when someone is in a happy mood they would wear nice bright colors but when someone is in a sad mood they would wear darker shades, or black.
During the 1940s and 1950s a new style of art was formed which was known as color and field painting. Color and Field painting is used to express the emotion and mood of the Artist such as how the Artist is feeling ,any illnesses they are going through, or personal experiences. In the picture on the right you can see that the colors are really gloomy and dull which may represent that the Artist is going through tough times. At the same time, it is abstract art, so the colors can define any other mood that you, the viewer, interpret it as. The maroon color could define that the artist is in love. The faded violet can define his hate for that love. The purple can define his happiness. that he feels while in love. Once again, it all depends on how the viewer interprets the colors.
