ELEMENTS OF ART
« on: September 14, 2015, 10:20:41 AM »
Elements of art are the basic properties of a work of art that may be perceived through the senses. In a painting, for instance, the properties that may be perceived through our senses
1.Rhythm of line
2.Shape
3.Massing of forms
4.Space
5.Light and shade (tone/value)
6.Color
7.texture
This is in most cases the order of their priority, not in absolute importance.
•A form must be defined by an outline, and this outline, unless it is to be lifeless, must have a rhythm of its own
•The massing of forms, space, light and shade should be considered in close relation
•Mass is solid space, light and shade are the effects of mass in relation to space
•Space is merely the inverse of mass
