Texture | Wed 10/25



Last week we worked on Project 5 focusing on how Line Systems come together to help us perceive depth through Value Gradation.

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 Visual characteristics, while also focusing on creating Illusion of Space and depth through value gradation.

Due for This Class

Finalize Project 4 | Shape & Space Compositions, upload and critique on E-portfolio.

After reading Design Basics: Rhythm 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.
Due class 8.
