Elements of art

This is an example of movement. The snakes are writhing around the head, and the eyes show movement in their squinched position of fear.
This is an example of form. The man is 3-D and is a relaxed, walking position.
This is an example of harmony. All the images have common themes, such as color, peoples, and poses that work together to create a larger picture of the culture depicted.
This is an example of color. The red is bright and emphasized by the gold accents.
This is an example of texture. The layering of cloth provides depth and evokes a feeling that one could feel rough, raggedness.
This is an example of value. The contrast between incredibly dark shadows and bright white highlights accent the abstractedness of the sculpture.
This is an example of emphasis. The lips and eyes are accentuated with glitter, while the rest of the picture is matte and doesn't quite stand out.
This is an example of rhythm. The sails and flags indicate movement of the wind, and the impressionism of the sea makes it looks as if it is perpetually moving.
This is an example of variety. There are many different shapes, faces/masks, objects, and colors used to create a surreal image.
This is an example of balance. Each side is symmetrical and equally represented.
This is an example of proportion. The lion is proportional with the artwork as a whole: it fits perfectly into the middle and is anatomically correct in regards to it's body's proportion
This is an example of gradation. The figures of the men are all shaded to distinguish their shape from the background in different hues of black.
This is an example of shape. The painting is flat, and has no dimension.
This is an example of line. Lines are used to create an abstract and broken up look to the artwork.
This is an example of space. All the movement is crowded towards the center of the painting, creating an empty space in the outskirts of the work
