Principles of Art
By: Garrison Lemmond #slaytonart2
Principles of Art that have been identified are balance, unity, rhythm/movement, emphasis, contrast, and pattern.
Balance is the impression of equilibrium in a pictorial or sculptural composition. Balance is often referred to as symmetrical, asymmetrical, or radial.
Unity- Ribbon Group Drawing
Unity is achieved when the components of a work of art are perceived as harmonious, giving the work a sense of completion.
Contrast is referred to the difference in two related elements such as color, shape, value, type, texture, alignment, direction and movement.
Emphasis- Emphasis Drawing
Emphasis refers to the created center of interest, the place in an artwork where your eye first lands.
Pattern- "Sometimes I Get Bored"
Pattern refers to the repetition or reoccurrence of a design element, exact or varied, which establishes a visual beat.
Movement/Rythm- Marble in Motion
Rhythm or movement refers to the suggestion of motion through the use of various elements.
