Transcript of 4X4 Portraitism
Portrait of Diego de Guevara Micheal Sittow
Peasent of the Camargue
Vincent van Gogh
One widely used element in these pieces is value, though it is most predominant in "Peasant of The Camargue" and Kathe Kollwitz' "Self Portrait"
The element of color is present in these artworks, and it in itself actually creates a sort of value.
The element value is used mostly for contrast. The change in value creates an implied line, and this in turn creates overlapping and the illusion of space.
Color in these two artworks is important, so that the viewer can tell that these people are real, since they are fairly realistic.
Another prominent element in all of these pieces is line, which can be achieved either by drawing it straight in or implying it with value.
This line is not always a drawn line, although it is in Van Gough's and Kollwitz' pieces, they use line to create movement, which is very common. Van Gough's movement is scattered, while Kollwitz' is horizontal.
These pieces all have strong texture. Sari Dienes is all in the hair, and Portrait of Diego de Guevara is mostly in the coat. There is though, texture in his hair. In Van Gogh's Piece, all of the texture is invented, as well as in Kollwitz'.
The texture used in these pieces creates a strong emphasis on the coat and the lady's hair. This emphasis can also sometimes become a focal point.
