Abby Logan's Elements and Principles of Design
I chose this as a representation of shape because it shows geometric shapes in the different tables and books. There's a lot of different rectangles.
I chose this as a representation of color because there is a great variation of color. There is a color wheel within the piece. Those colors also vary in hue.
I chose this piece as a representation of space because it shows definition. It looks like a large expanse of land, from the mountain in the background to the rocks in the foreground.
I chose this a s a representation of line because it depicts both straight lines and curved lines. The clouds in the sky are made with curved lines, while the buildings are straight, real lines.
I chose this as a representation of value because there is great variation between the lights and darks within the piece. The white of the people's clothing is stark contrast with the dark background.
I chose this as a representation of texture because there is many textures within the piece. From the furry look of the bear and the grassy look of the field, to the tree bark and the dress fabric.
I chose this as a representation of form because the artist made the woman look realistic. Her shoulder looks as if it could come off of the canvas; it looks three dimensional.
I chose this photograph to represent texture because it shows the surface of the rock. It is very rough and gravely. The lighting also helps to show the unified texture of the rock face.
I chose this photograph as a representation of space because the long street adds dimension to the photo. the buildings extend to the center of the frame, showing the length of the street.
I chose this photograph as a representation of line because both the buildings and the shadows make implied lines in the photo. Your eye follows the outline of the buildings throughout the frame.
I chose this photograph as a representation of shape because of the obvious circular shape to the windows in the wall.
I chose this photograph as a representation of form due to the dome in the background. The dome has dimension.
I chose this photograph as a representation of value because the photo shows a great variation between blacks and whites. There is really dark black in the sails, and light whites in the water.
I chose this photo as a representation of color because of the different colors. There is warm and cool colors in the photo and that develops high contrast.
I chose this photo as a representation of movement because the movement is portrayed through the people dancing. You could see that they had to have been moving when the picture was taken.
I chose this piece as a representation of emphasis. It shows emphasis because our eye is meant to focus not on all of the wooden boards but the face that is being projected on those boards.
I chose this plate as a representation of pattern because of the pattern that was imprinted in it when it was being made. The pattern is very intricate and is the same base pattern duplicated.
I chose this piece as a representation of balance because it symmetrical. There are two identical towers on either side of the main castle, and it looks perfectly balanced to the eye.
I chose this piece as a representation of unity because throughout the whole piece, there is very similar shades of blue. the whole piece is cohesive in the sense that it all blends together.
I chose this piece as a representation of variety because there is a wide span of different colors throughout the piece. There is stark contrast between the warm and cool colors, and the compliments.
I chose this piece as a representation of proportion because it shows a great difference. The tree is the same size as the fruit in the bowl. There is a lack of proper proportion in this piece.
