Drawing 1 Final Project

By Diana Kvach

In this art piece the artist uses lines to create movement. The use of wavy and curved lines make it look like the ocean waves are moving or crashing onto the shoreline. Deeper into the ocean, the lines make the waves look like they are rocking against each other, adding even more movement to the artwork.
In this piece, the artist uses linear perspective. The road shrinks the further it gets. The artist creates distance on the piece of paper by making it look like the road continues even past the paper. Even the cars, fence, and people on the road decrease in size further down the road. By using linear perspective the artist adds depth to their painting.
Here the artist uses texture to make the dog's fur look realistic. The use of thin, short, and choppy lines make the fur look real. The artist also uses shading, light and dark lines to add contrast between dark and light parts of the fur coat. The way the artist uses these lines and shading techniques makes the dog in the painting look real, like you could actually touch it and feel the fur. Of course you can't, it's 2D. But the texture of this painting is what makes it so realistic.
In this piece the artist uses detail to create the illusion of space in their painting. The man and woman that are appear to be closest to us, have the most detail. The further away objects and people get, the less detailed they appear to be. For example, you can clearly see the man walking with the umbrella. But further back, the people just seem to appear as smudges of dark colors. When in fact, they are also people walking in the street. The farther away the building in the background gets, the less detail we see, creating the illusion of space and depth in the painting.
Here the artist uses placement in the painting to create the illusion of space. The group of people in the very front seem closer because they are placed lower on the horizon line. The other people, like men on horses, are placed further up on the horizon line. And the man in the back is closet or higher up on the horizon line. This placement makes the painting have the illusion of space and depth. The higher up things are on the horizon line, the further away they seem to be.
The artist uses value and color to create the illusion of space in their artwork. The hill closest to us is the darkest. The hills after that begin to fade in color the farther away they get. The hill furthest away from us appears to be the lightest in color. By using value and color the artist is able to add depth and space into their art, making it look like the hills continue on further and further away.
In this painting the fish on the plate overlap, creating the illusion of space. The one closer to us has another fish behind it, and that one has another one behind it. Making it look like they go further back into the painting, like the plate on which they sit goes back into the paper, giving the painting an illusion of depth and space.
In this painting, the artist displays the use of a gesture drawing. When using curved lines, the artist can indicate that the object or person is moving or completing an action. The way the girls arms are drawn with curved lines, tells us that she may be leaning on the table with one hand. Her other hand is also curved, creating a gesture. We can say she may be brushing her neck because of the way her arm is drawn with curved lines.
Here the artist uses size to give the illusion of space. The people in the front appear to be bigger then the people in the back because that is how the artist painted them. They could be the same size, but since the people shrink the further away they get, it makes the painting look like it has depth. The difference in their size is what creates space in the painting.
In this art piece, the artist uses positive and negative space to bring out the form and detail of the woman. The negative space or dark parts, show us where the woman is standing and how she is standing. While the positive space, light parts, bring out the detail in the woman's dress. The use of positive and negative space is what our brains see things not only in the foreground but in the background. We change our perception of space by looking at the negative space.
In this painting the artist uses shading to turn shapes into forms. By shading in parts of the fruits, vases, and bowls, along with adding a shadow behind them, the artist makes the fruits and vases look real, three dimensional. Without shading and shadows, the fruits and vases would look flat and two dimensional. Instead of looking like a sphere, the object would look like a circle. Instead of a cone, the bowl would look more like a triangle. Shading turns 2D things into 3D things.
