Art Element

line, shape/form, volume/mass, texture, value, space/perspective, color, time/motion

This portrait is an example of time/motion. The woman appears to be frozen in time with her arm pulled back and her body tilted back. She appears as if she will take a step forward and finish her movement with her arm at any moment.
This picture is an example of space/perspective because the first row of pillars/arcs are the biggest and tallest, and as the rows of structures become smaller in the background, the structures appear to be further away.
The Wetterhorn is an example of differing values. The closer scenery is darker while the further scenery with the tall mountains is lighter and brighter. The differing values also creates a sense of the piece of art being three-dimensional.
The Unku is an example of color through the vibrant colors of red and yellow, outlined in a black background. Each red and yellow design is prominent with the red in the middle drawing the most attention.
The Four Girls is an example of shape/form through the organic and geometric shapes used to create a scene of four girls socializing outdoors.
The Elephant is an example of texture when Rembrandt creates the effect of the elephant's skin being rough and thick through the many lines and zig-zags going many different directions and every which way.
The Blinding of Samson is an example of directional lines. The most prominent being the spear being point directly at Samson's face. In addition to everyone's directional gaze on Samson as they try to hold him down.
The self-portrait is an example of implied volme. He looks three-dimensional, when in actuality, it is a two-dimensional piece of art.
