Elements and Principles of art

Elements: The tools to make art.

I did this one because it has a lot of the elements of art.

Line: It's a point moving in space.

In this picture it has road lines.

Shape: It is 2D and categorized as geometric or organic

In this picture there is 2D squares.

Value: The lightness or darkness of tones or colors in an object.

Its not drawn but you can see on the shape there is dark and light areas.

Color: Made up of 3 properties hue, value, and intensity

In this picture there is lots of color pencils.

Texture: It refers to the way things feel, or look like they feel

I choose this picture because the different type of paint strokes look like texture.

Form: Art that is 3D also my be free flowing

I chose this because it looks 3D and it has some movement.

Space: Art that creates a sense of depth of positive space and negative space.

I did this because it has the owl behind the to create space.

Principles: How to use the tools to make art.

I did this picture because it has most of the principles.

Movement: It's to guild the viewer's eyes throughout the art.

Because it looks like its moving and you look at it longer

Rhythm: It's made by repeating elements in art.

Its repeating the candle

Balance: When you add elements all around to make it feel stable.

The elements in this art makes it balanced.

Unity: Combine parts of work to make it belong together

I picked it because the bows go together. (and there was no other good one to pick for this one)

Emphasis: It's when one part stands out more to catch viewers attention.

I did this because the light stands out.

Contrast: A difference between the things place together in the art.

I did this because the strips have a contrast together. (plus I can't anything better)
