Principles of design By bryan sutton


Repetition: Repeated elements of art: shapes, color, textures, lines, forms, values .


Movement : how the elements are arranged to direct the viewers eye throughout the art. Could be in a "V" "X" "T" shape or an organic line.
Balance : refers to the ways in which the elements (lines, shapes, colors, textures, etc.) of a piece are arranged.
The elements in art need to be varied but harmonious.
Also called "Emphasis" or "Center of Interest." One aspect of the picture needs to stand out. This might be done though contract of size, color, value, texture. This is the most "eye-catching" part of the picture. Illustrate and explain this on you page
This is purposefully leaving aspects of the original image OUT as you draw or paint in order to allow the center of Interest to stand out and to create the Line Movement you desire. Find examples of art that has purposefully left out parts of the image to direct the eye accorningly.
