Principles of Design Madison itani

Repetition- repeated elements of art: shapes, color, textures, lines, forms, values.
In this picture the lines are being repeated.
Movement- how the elements are arranged to direct the viewers eye throughout the art.
In this picture we see movement when he flips.
Balance- the visual weight of a work of art
In this picture it is balanced because there are many small rocks in the back to balance the big ones in the front.
Variation- same elements varied differently throughout the art.
In this picture, the flowers vary in color.
Dominance- one thing in the work of art is emphasized.
In this picture the eye is emphasized with color.
Economy- 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
In this picture, the body of the tiger is left out to create the center of interest on its face.
