Point, Line, Shape, Mass, Volume, Texture, Value

  1. 1. Point, Line, Shape, Mass and Volume, Texture, and Value
  2. 2. POINT • The simplest of elements – Used singularly to highlight – Series can suggest lines – Clusters can suggest density
  3. 3. LINE • Line types – Actual – Implied • Line in Two- dimensional Art • Line in Three- dimensional Art
  4. 4. Line Variations. a. Actual line.
  5. 5. Line Variations. e. Vertical line (attitude of alert attention); horizontal line (attitude of rest).
  6. 6. Line Variations. f. Diagonal lines (slow action, fast action).
  7. 7. Line Variations. i. Hard line, soft line.
  8. 8. Line Variations. g. Sharp, jagged line.
  9. 9. GESTURAL LINE • Line that conveys the energy of the artist’s hand as it moves across the drawing surface.
  10. 10. Expressive lines
  11. 11. Curvilinear lines
  12. 12. IMPLIED LINE • A series of points that the eye recognizes as a line; a perceived line where areas of contrasting color or texture meet.
  13. 13. Line Variations. c. Actual straight lines and implied curved line.
  14. 14. Line Variations. b. Implied line.
  15. 15. Line Variations. d. Line created by an edge
  16. 16. Zander Olson
  17. 17. CONTOUR LINE • An actual line or implied line that defines the outer limits of a three dimensional object or two- dimensional shape; used synonymously with “outline”.
  18. 18. Mysterious Marks Near Dunhuang, China
  19. 19. SHAPE • Geometric or Organic • Figure and Ground • Positive and Negative Shape • Amorphous Shape • Three-dimensional Shape
  20. 20. POSITIVE SHAPE • A dominant shape on a ground.
  21. 21. NEGATIVE SHAPE • A shape “left over” or around a dominant shape.
  22. 22. FIGURE • A shape on a background.
  23. 23. GROUND • A background on which marks, shapes, or figures are placed.
  24. 24. Figure (or ground) can be either dark or light…
  25. 25. Geometric Shapes
  26. 26. Organic Shape
  27. 27. Amorphous (irregular) shape
  28. 28. MASS and VOLUME • Mass: the physical bulk (a shape in 3- dimensions) • Volume: the measurable area that an object occupies • Mass and volume can be actual or implied
  29. 29. MASS • An actual or illusory three-dimensional bulk.

  31. 31. VOLUME • The measurable area that an object occupies-its height, width, and depth.
  32. 32. Jen Stark
  33. 33. TEXTURE • Actual Texture • Implied Texture – Visual texture: an illusion of tactile qualities
  34. 34. VALUE • The relative degree of light or dark.
  35. 35. VALUE • Highlights • Shadow • Contrast
  36. 36. VALUE
  37. 37. CONTRAST • The degree of value difference in an image; high contrast is a wide separation between dark and light; low contrast is a narrow range of values in an image.
