  4. 4. A self contained, defined area of geometric or organic form. <br />A positive shape in a painting automatically creates a negative shape.<br />Shape<br />

  6. 6. value<br />The use of light and dark, shade and highlight, in an artwork. <br />Value is directly related to contrast. <br />Value is the darkness and lightness of an object depending on how the light is shown.<br />
  7. 7. form<br />Form may be created by the forming of two or more shapes or as three-dimensional shape (cube, pyramid, sphere, etc).<br />May be enhanced by tone, texture and colour. <br />Considered three-dimensional showing height, width and depth. <br />Examples of these are sculpture, theatre play, figurines.<br />

  9. 9. space<br />The area provided for a particular purpose<br />Space includes the background, foreground and middle ground. <br />Refers to the distances or areas around, between or within components of a piece. <br />There are two types of space:<br />Positive<br />The shape representing the subject matter.<br />Negative <br />The space around and between the subject matter.<br />
