Implied Line The following sculpture is an example of implied line. The viewer naturally follows the "line" of the sculpture's arm and looks to where he is pointing.
Actual Line The following piece of artwork uses different objects to convey actual line. Cezanne made the lines of these objects tilted and slanted to imitate "still life."
Shape-Geometric The following piece of artwork is an example of geometric shape. The hat itself is a rectangle, but the design on it also displays geometric shapes. It contains squares, triangles, and rectangles that all make the design.
Shape-Organic The following piece of artwork is an example of organic shape. There is no recognizable form of shape in this picture. The grass and flowers were made by light and dark colors of green and blue.
Complementary Color The following piece of artwork conveys a complementary color scheme. The artist used oranges and blues which are opposite each other on the color wheel.
Analogous Color The following piece of artwork is an example of an analogous color scheme. The artist used yellows, greens, and blues to create a warm feeling in the viewer. The colors all neighbor each other on the color wheel.
Arbitrary Color The following piece of artwork is an example of arbitrary color. No one is really green and yet the artist painted this girl to have a green face with blue and red hues around her eyes. Her hair is also a darker green on top with black underneath.
Illusion of Depth The following piece of artwork is an example of illusion of depth in space. If you look at the piece, the ocean seems to go on forever in space. This illusion of depth makes the viewer perceive the piece realistically.
Positive/Negative Space The following piece of artwork is an example of how positive/negative space is used in art. The positive space is the figure itself because it occupies the most mass. The negative space in the figure conveys a sense of volume because the hole is what and the frame that surrounds it is darker.
Actual Texture The following piece of artwork uses stone to create a certain type of actual texture. When you first look at this the sculptures seem smooth but then you notice that they are missing pieces of their arms and legs. These patches convey a rough and rigid texture.
Implied Texture The following piece of artwork is an example of implied texture. Unlike the use of stone that creates actual texture, Van Gogh used different brushstrokes to represent a type of smooth and flowing texture in the painting.
Value-Monochromatic The following picture is an example of the use of monochromatic value. The artist used one color, grey, to create the image of a woman. To do this using one color, he made the value of light and dark in different areas.
Hatching/Cross-hatching In the following image, the use of hatching and cross-hatching are used to create three men and their cloaks. If you look closely, you will see little hatches that are crossed at an angle by other hatches. This is called cross-hatching and is especially noticeable in the first man's cloak. There are also little lines or "hatches" that make up the men's faces. The darker the area, the more hatches were used.
Chiaroscuro In the following piece of artwork, chiaroscuro is used to create an image. The artist used light to create patches of light and dark on the boy's face. Because the light is coming from the side, half his face is lighter than the other half which receives no light.
Pattern In the following photograph, there are many different types of patterns used. Each column in the picture displays a certain kind of pattern through shapes, color, and different designs.
Balance-Symmetrical The following piece of artwork is an example of symmetrical balance. If you drew a line down the center of this tile, both sides would more or less be a mirror image of each other.
Balance-Radial The following piece of artwork is an example of radial balance. There is a star in the center of the plate that seems to shoot out other designs. Everything is centered around the star and its points.
Balance-Asymmetrical The following piece of artwork is an example of asymmetrical balance. The right side of the picture is darker because of the trees and ground rather than the left side which is lighter because of the sky and water. If we were to place a fulcrum beneath the picture it would divide the picture between light and dark.
Contrast The following piece of artwork is an example of contrast. The contrast of light and dark is quite obvious in this picture. The lighter background (setting sun) is a contrast from the dark ground that has already lost sunlight.
Movement/Motion The following piece of artwork is how movement is displayed within a sculpture. Even though the two people are frozen in time, you can tell that she is pushing him off of her. By their hands grabbing each other and his legs in the air, gives a sense of motion within the sculpture.
Emphasis The following piece of artwork uses emphasis to draw the viewer's attention to one area of the work. When the viewer looks at this piece they immediately see a pile of globes in the right corner of the picture. This is the main focal point that the artist wanted the viewer to see. There is also a light brown globe position among all the other globes. The artist wanted to make this globe stand out from all the other ones.
Scale The following picture is an example of how scale is used in art. The shuttlecocks are enormous in scale to place emphasis on them in front of the Nelson-Atkins Museum of Art. The artist's thought of the green lawn as a playing field and the Museum as a badminton net.
Proportion The following picture is an example of how proportion is used in art. When you look at the picture you notice a huge waterfall coming down the hill. Then you see a horse with two people standing by it in the middle of the waterfall. It looks as though they are fixing to be swept down the river by the waterfall behind them. The artist made the waterfall larger in proportion to add a more dramatic effect to the picture.
Repetition/Rhythm The following piece of artwork is an example of repetition and rhythm. Each figure repeats itself, but is changed in some way. Your eyes seem to flow with the motion of the bodies.
Unity The following piece of artwork expresses unity. When you look at this painting, you see horses running on a racetrack. The all seem to have the same motion which develops a sense of unity among them. They are all running together with the same goal in mind.
Variety The following piece of artwork is an example of how variety is used in art. If you look at the two horses with their heads down, you can tell they have the same idea. However the far right horse is thinking something else. Even though the horses are united they have a different perspective about them.
Representational The following picture is an example of representational art. The scene of the landscape looks very realistic and the viewer is able to recognize everything in the picture.
Abstract The following piece of artwork is an example of abstract art. Even though the picture doesn't necessarily represent things in the real world, you can clearly see two figures within the different patterns. Not everything is completely unrecognizable.
Non-representational The following picture is an example of non-representational art. The picture displays no objects in the natural world at all. There is nothing recognizable in this picture.
Role of Innovator The following piece of artwork is a new way of expressing your artistic side. Ana Mendieta played the role of innovator when she imprinted a design on this leaf. Unlike the typical canvas material used, she used a natural object that can be found almost anywhere.
