Transcript of Elements of Art and Principles of Design Presentations

Line & Texture LINE:
A mark, or stroke that is longer then it is wide. It is the path of a point moving in space. Objects and things are preceived by the line that describes them.

When repeated, lines can create a pattern. Patterned lines also give the image rhythm. Elements of Art Texture: Horizontal Vertical Diagonal Deep, Acute Curves Soft, Shallow Curves Curvy lines Characteristics Width - thick, thin, tapering, uneven
Length - long, short, continous, broken
Direction - horizontal, vertical, diagonal, curving, perpendicular
Focus - sharp, blurry, fuzzy, choppy
Feeling - sharp, jagged, graceful, smooth
Direction - horizontal, vertical, diagonal, curving, perpendicular
Focus - sharp, blurry, fuzzy, choppy
Feeling - sharp, jagged, graceful, smooth Elements of Art Texture is the quality of an object which we sense through touch. It exists as a literal surface we can feel, but also as a surface we can see, and imagine the sensation might have if we felt it or refer to our memories of surfaces we have touched.

This can be seen in drawings such as the Saul Steinberg illustration shown here Combined:
Lines can be combined with other lines to create textures and patterns. This is common in engravings and pen and ink drawings. The use of line in combination results in the development of form and value, which are other elements of design.
