The Elements of Design
Transcript of The Elements of Design
The elements of design are the basic building blocks of any artwork.
A thin continuous mark, as that made by a pen,
pencil, or brush applied to a surface.
A two dimensional image defined by it's outlines or contours.
The shape and structure of a three dimensional object.
The lightness, or darkness of a color.
The effect produced by light of various wavelengths being reflected back to the eye.
the surface quality or feel of an object
the distance between, around, above,
below or within things. Depth.
Textures can be either
Lines can either be
2 Dimesional lines are marks made
on a flat surface. Different lines may
have different characteristics, or traits.
How the line can be described is known
3 Dimesional lines are the visible lines
observed on the
and contours of
3 dimensional objects, or forms.
Shapes can either be
Like shapes, forms can either be
when a line comes to enclose a flat space, it becomes a...
When a picture is drawn or rendered
to look like it's three dimensional it is
When a third dimesion is
added to a shape, it becomes a....
One of the ways we can imply a
form, is to add value to the shapes.
There is an entire range of values,
gradually transitioning from
The extent to which the values
differ in an artwork is called "contrast."
Contrast can be
There are three factors which
determine how a color will appear
Colors can be either
Value can influence the
when there are a variety of
colors, values and intensities in one
area, it creates....
-dimensional space, and
2 dimesional space can be either
Three dimesional space includes
in addition to length and width.
Depth is communicated in a
variety of ways, such as
figure ground organization
Texture, as well as all of the
previous elements are arranged in...
3 Dimensional space can be positive
or negative too, but we'll get to that
