  11. 11. Perspective <ul><li>Perspective is the way in which artists create an illusion of depth on a flat surface. For hundreds of years painters have tried to represent accurately a scene that exists in three dimensions on a two-dimensional canvas. One of the ways to create this illusion is to make the objects that are far away smaller than those that are closer to the viewer. </li></ul>

  13. 13. Color <ul><li>Use of different colors provide emphasis, emotion, etc. Often colors highlight parts of an image to draw specific attention to it. </li></ul>
  14. 14. Form <ul><li>By using light and shadows, artists give volume to their subjects. One way one can give figures three-dimensional form is to reflect light off their bodies and paint shadows cast by them. </li></ul>
  15. 15. Motion <ul><li>Depicting motion is a technique painters use to keep our attention focused on the picture. </li></ul>
  16. 16. Proportion <ul><li>Proportion usually refers to the way different elements in a painting relate to each other in terms of size. </li></ul>
