I believe that this piece is an example of implied line because the placement of people all lead to the central light, implying a line to that point.
This an example of actual line because the entire piece is constructed of vertical and diagonal lines that all imply motion inward and upward.
I believe that this piece is a perfect example of geometric shape. The tower and inner workings of the tower are all a conical or cylindrical shape heavily outlined by the structure of the tower.
The figures in this piece are perfect examples of organic shape. there are no perfect geometric shapes in this piece, but it has the recognizable form and shape of humans and plants.
I think that this print is an example of complementary colors because red and green are opposite of one another on the color wheel, as a result, these colors seem to brighten the print when we look at them next to each other.
I think that this piece is an example of analogous color because the cooler parts of the piece (the plants) and the warmer parts of the piece (the buildings) are comprised of colors that are next to one another on the color wheel, and they blend into one another.
I believe that this piece is an example of arbitrary color because several of the figures are different colors in this painting than they are outside of the work.
I believe that this piece uses perceptual color because the background is perceived as distant mountains and are a cooler shade even though they are (in actuality) the same hue as this rocks in the foreground.
This piece is an example of using space to give the illusion of depth, because even though the work is flat, the viewer perceives that it is a landscape that stretches very far behind the main figure.
I think that this work uses positive and negative space because the brightness of the foreground makes the viewer perceive the middle figures as closer whereas the darker areas make the viewer perceive the outer figures as farther away.
This work is an example of actual texture because if the viewer were to actually touch the work, they would observe that it looks exactly as it feels.
This is an example of implied texture because there are various textures that the viewer perceives in the work; however, the work is flat.
I believe that this work is a monochromatic value because it is composed of the same hue with various shades and tints.
This entire piece is made of cross-hatching which gives both texture and value to the piece.
This piece is composed using the chiaroscuro technique which uses cross-hatching to give value to shaded areas and absence of line to the brighter areas.
This piece embodies a pattern because the figures are in various and repeated symmetrical poses.
This piece is a radially balanced piece because the whole work radiates from the central figure.
This piece is asymmetrically balanced because the figures do not match and the focus is placed on the two figures in the front left.
This piece is a symmetrically balanced work ( it's not perfect so it's bilateral). The figures are in similar poses and can be folded over one another.
This piece implies movement/motion by the way that the figures are depicted in a jumping and leaning position, the viewer can't possibly picture them as still objects.
This piece uses the position of all of the people facing Paul to place emphasis on him. Also, his standing position as opposed to their kneeling position places emphasis on him.
This piece uses scale to give depth by placing objects we perceive to be larger next to smaller objects in order to give the illusion of space.
This piece uses repetition with all of the female figures descending the staircase.
This piece uses proportions of the knight and his surroundings to give depth and space to the work. Otherwise, the viewer would not see the background as farther away than the knight.
This work uses lines of dots to give it unity with itself.
This piece uses a variety of colors in order to give it life, motion, and vibrancy.
This is a representational artwork because it is a portrait of an actual place and is a view of that place in the world.
This is a non-representational piece because it has no reference to the natural world, but instead studies line and color.
I think that this work is an example of the role of an innovator because prior to this point, humans had not studied anatomy or the representation thereof and this type of drawing and study was new and innovative for Da Vinci's time period.
This is an abstract work because it is a stylized version of a perceived event of the past.
