- minor forces
- middle gray
- a A visually perceived area defined by value, line, color, texture, and/or space. Shapes can be organic, geometric, abstract, representational, complex or simple.
- b On a value scale or within a composition containing numerous values, the midpoint value found between any two given values. Middle gray is a mixture that visually represents 50% of a specific tint and 50% of a specific shade. Middle gray is considered neutral-meaning that the eye is at total rest- the cones and rods of the eye are inactive-when it looks at middle gray. Typically middle gray is made from black and white, but there are other middle mixtures that are neutral such as the middle mixtures of a complementary scale
- c The apparent or actual solidity or three-dimensionality of a drawn, painted, crafted or sculpted object. The composition and structure of the work as a whole.
- d A continuous surface limited by edges
- e the movements you see in a composition after study, that support the dominant or subdominant structure
5 Multiple choice questions
- The act or process of diminishing value, by way of its recession in space, to an overall darker or lighter state.
- The part of an object that, from the viewer's position, receives the greatest amount of direct light. The highest value of a modeled form, or a bright distinct dot or area on the surface of a shiny form that accentuates its glossiness
- Linear perspective with two vanishing points, placed on the horizon at the left and right of the object, usually off the picture plane or canvas. Vertical lines remain parallel to the picture plane.
- The mental connection between two points or elements. An
invisible line joining, for example a person's eyes to the object they are looking at, or the line that extends into space from the tip of a pointing arrow directing the viewer's eye to follow it.
- the dominant structure or organization of a composition in which all the elements conform to.
5 True/False questions
balance → Occurs when opposing or interacting forms are out of equilibrium in a composition
pattern → Repetition of an element, unit or motif in a regular and anticipated sequence, with some symmetry.
tactile texture → the illusion of texture created by the skill of the artist, also called illusion or haptic texture
asymmetry → a three-dimensional form of collage with bulky 3D objects added to the painted surface
movement → an element in space having a definite position and technically no dimension
