Line Systems | Rhythm
Last week we started to work on Project 4 continuing to abstract a design's Degree of Representation by exploring the Elements of Design Line characteristics to convey Content, and by paying attention to the Principle of Organization Emphasis and Focal Point
This week we continue to abstract a design's Degree of Representation by exploring the Element of Design Texture to help us perceive Tactile and Implied characteristics, while also focusing on creating Illusion of Space and depth through value gradation.
Homework Due for Class 6
Finalized Project 4 | Directional Dominance.
After reading Design Basics: Rhythm chapter, and researching what Movement in design is, search the Internet for an artwork that clearly has a strong sense of Movement.
Post the image here and write how rhythm and movement in the artwork were accomplished.
Here are some possibilities:
. Changes in direction.
. Changes in darkness or lightness.
. Similar shapes connected with each other.
. Overlapping elements.
. Repetition of elements.
