Art 110 illusions of space

The Illusion of space

Size: objects that are near the perspective point are smaller than objects that appear to be farther away.
Exaggerated size: certain objects are larger as to draw the viewers attention.
Overlapping: The use of overlapping shapes to create size.
Vertical location: items near the bottom of the canvas are closer to the viewer creating the illusion of space.
Aerial Perspective: the use of color and value to create depth. Objects that are closer have sharper color compared to objects that are farther away.
Linear "one-point" Perspective: all lines converge on a single point
Horizon positioning: positioning the horizon lower on the work creates the illusion of less ground space and vice versa.
Two point Perspective: lines converge on two points near the horizon.
Amplified perspective: the person or object closest to the artist is the largest whereas the background is smaller.
Multiple perspectives: used to show an object outside of normal view, shows most important parts.
Isometric projection: parallel lines stay parallel and do not intersect.
Transparency: used to show space, we always know what is in front and what is behind.
