I think this piece of art work is a good example of implied line due to the contrasting colors and the bare pathway that leads down between the trees. When looking art this, your line of sight is directed straight towards the horizon.
Spatial Line Elements, Jan Kubicek, 1969, From the collection of: Museum Kampa
The following photograph represents an actual line because your eyes follow it . Lines do not have to be any certain shape, width, or height.
This picture is a great example of abstract art because clearly, you can see that there is a guitar , but it is not the way you would normally see a real one. It has many different shapes surrounding it that causes it to appear abstract.
This painting is a perfect example of nonrepresentational art. It does not depict a scene of any real objects, instead just a bunch of shapes linked around each other.
A Winding Road - Cornish Landscape, Sir Matthew Smith, 1920, From the collection of: British Council
This art work shows many different examples of complementary art. The path way is red, complimenting the green shrubs. The house in the upper left corner is orange, with a complimenting blue roof.
Roll of Innovator
This structure is an example of Roll of Innovator because it can easily be viewed from several different angle, making it look like a different object each time. The artists is clearly trying to make you focus on this object to see it differently than you've see anything before.
Seascape near Les Saintes-Maries-de-la-Mer, Vincent van Gogh, June 1888 - 1888, From the collection of: Van Gogh Museum
I chose this painting as an example of an analogous color because it contains three colors that neighbor each other on the color wheel. The colors that the artist chose to paint with are clearly blue, green, and yellow.
Breton girl spinning, Paul Gauguin, 1889, From the collection of: Van Gogh Museum
This painting is an example of arbitrary color due to the fact that the colors of many objects in the picture are not the true colors in real life. Trees are not normally blueish-green and dogs are not naturally blue!
I chose this as my example of perceptual color because the clouds make the colors of the mountains appear to be a color that it really is not.
Five Mile Avenue, Forty Mile Bush, James Bragge, circa 1875, From the collection of: Te Papa
Illusion of Depth
This picture is an example of illusion of depth because the road at the bottom of the page appears to be closer to the viewer and as the road nears the top of the page, it gets smaller. You can distinguish this because the size of the man at the end of the road is tiny compared to the large trees overhead. It seems to me like you are traveling farther and farther like it will never end.
This photograph is an example of actual texture because it portrays a figure of a real object. The piano in the photo appears to be a hard, solid object just like it would be if you were to touch it in person.
I chose this photo of the woman and her child as my example of cross hatching because it uses only lines to make the image. The darker areas are from the lines being crossed closer together and the lighter areas are from the lines being stretched apart.
Judith and Holofernes, Artemisia Gentileschi, 1620 - 1621, From the collection of: Uffizi Gallery
This photograph is a good example of Chiaroscuro Value because light is shown onto the figures causing the viewers eye to focus on that instead of the plain black background.
Masi (tapa cloth), Unknown, Unknown, From the collection of: Te Papa
I chose this photograph as an example of a pattern because it is consistent throughout the entire work of art.
This angel represents movement because you can clearly see that it is in motion. The wrinkles of the dress and the ripple of the top are both moving in the exact same direction as if the figure is walking/running.
I chose this painting as my example of proportion because the contrast of the different sized images shows the exact proportion of the mountains due to the human figure and boat being so small.
I chose this painting as an example of unity because each group of people in it are gathered together as a whole. It is very balanced and when you see it , it can't help but to be pleasing to the eyes!
This photograph is a great example of variety because of all the different shapes, colors, and lines. You can't help but to notice all of the different elements that this picture has to offer.
Woman Strolling (Une élégante), Georges Seurat (French, 1859 - 1891), about 1884, From the collection of: The J. Paul Getty Museum
This artwork is a good example of contrast. It has many different contrast colors of white grey and black that make the figure of the woman holding the can stand out.
The birth of Venus, Sandro Botticelli, 1483 - 1485, From the collection of: Uffizi Gallery
This artwork demonstrates an example of implied texture because the four figures in the picture have very long hair. I feel like their hair is an example because the artists made it into such detail that it looks like you can actual feel their hair, but really you cannot.
I think this is an example of organic art because the meadow with the planted poppies is most likely man made. This definition was difficult to find because my definition of organic art would be like the viewing in the book, where the man put rocks into a spiral one by one.
