The flat image composition
The use of perspective to represent in art the apparent visual contraction of an object that extends back in space at an angle to the perpendicular plane of sight.
Devices to show depth
size, overlapping, vertical location, aerial perspective; plan, elevation, perspective; linear perspective, one-point perspective, two-point perspective, multi-point perspective
Creates the illusion of depth.
Bottom layers- father
a spacial device in which elevation on the page or format indicates a recession into depth.
the higher the object- the farther away
Plan, Elevation, Perspective
Plan (blueprints), Elevation (height and elevation), Perspective (elevation and plan from an obscure angle to show depth)
As parallel lines recede, they appear to converge and to meet on the horizon, creating depth.
Monocular depth clue
Single vantage point (Linear perspective)
our two-eyed perseption of depth
When on image r shape is placed next to or in comparison to another image or shape
"putting together" shapes or images from various sources and/or angles
a single fixed vantage point on which linear perspective is based
Things that are closer are larger. As they further away they get smaller
"Purposeful Ambiguity" (not being clear about what is where or what overlaps what)
A border around the perimeter that visually turns the eye inward.
Use of color or value to show depth. Color and/or value become less as an object recedes, turns blue grey and fade, contours become less distinct, and edges are less clear.
Like foreshortening- object closest to the camera or artist is very large and the rest of the figure or scene is small in the background. Gives a dramatic, dynamic quality. Quickly pulls the viewer into the picture.
Artwork in which the idea is more important then the execution or technique
Parallel Lines remain parallel. They do not recede to a vanishing point.
When the picture and the object lead the viewer's eye back into the picture.
Parallel lines come together at the same place in infinity, called a vanishing point. This effect was rediscovered during the Renaissance period. "A single point has been placed on the horizon line and all lines of objects at right angles to the plane of the canvas angle off towards that point."
uses 2 vanishing points on the horizon
When two forms overlap, but both can still be seen.
When an object either breaks out of the frame, or pulls the viewer's eye off of the canvas
A vantage point based on a two point system much like our eyesight
