Elements Of Art and Design

I have neither given nor received unauthorized aid on this work. - Garrett Simco

The lines in this artwork appear thicker and closer together in the areas where there is shading. Thinner, farther-apart lines are used in less shaded areas and folds in the clothing. The jug in her hand is double-outlined, probably to create the illusion of motion.
Even though this artwork is only made up of simple shapes and colors, it is easy to distinguish the different objects and people within the painting. This painting includes both geometric and abstract shapes. The rounded shapes in this work give a more relaxed feeling than the shapes that have sharper edges.
This painting demonstrates value since it has some areas where it light shades of gray, and other areas are much darker. This leads people to focus on the center of the painting. It also causes the hands to appear much more realistic than they would if they only use 1 solid value.
This drawing demonstrates texture because the thin lines appear as if you could feel them if you touched it. The leaf also has very small details up close that make it appear to have the same smooth texture as that of a real leaf.
This painting creates form through shadows, darkness, and lightness. The bucket is shaded darker towards the left to create an illusion of being 3D. Every rock on the ground also has shading and a shadow, to appear 3D.
This painting has negative space for the entire background. Because of this, even though the colors in the 3 strands are mostly dull, they still appear colorful. The space creates a balance of the colorful strands and the background.
This painting shows a wide variety of different colors. The overall painting gives off a calm feeling because of the cool colors which are more abundant in this painting. The colors saturation varies throughout each object to create gradients, which give the illusion of that object being 3D.
