Terms in this set (45)
A still visible remnant or under drawing that indicates a change made between an earlier stage of drawing and the finished compisition. Italian for "Change of mind".
A sugggestive or invisible line. A line whose direction or vector continues beyond where the line stops; line that relies on the viewer to conceptually complete the movement that the line suggest.
The arrangement of elements within a drawing in relationship to each other and the whole.
Records information directly from our observations.
Stored visual concepts that facilitate recognition of objects but often prevent accurate perception of familiar objects.
A quick, all-encompassing, simultaneous overview of the wholeness of forms and their relationship in space. It is energetic, flexible, spontaneous and feels the Ins and Outs of the shape.
A systematic drawing procedure generally concerned with the structure and the forms essential structural features, executed in an orderly and rational manner. Readjusting diagonal and searching lines to reposition a shape according to its hight and width plotting the forms and shapes - diretional lines.
Mondrian Tool or Grid
To generate countless vertical and horizontal comparisons between two prominent points within your visual field. Use it for measuring and counting distances and shapes within a form. This is concidered a left-brain activity.
An elliptical or rectangular shape that defines the volume or skeletal structure of that object. The solid form and its shapes are seen as transparent thus indicating an understanding of its structure.
The range of tones from light to dark or black to white; all the shades of gray in between.
To envoke the sense of touch. A form may gain its quality from the character of its contour or from surface modeling.
The expression of a form as occupying 3-D space
In drawing, the representation of illusion or an object's weight, volume and density.
An agent that enlivens a work and sustains intrest, shapes, color, line and pattern.
The combination of light and dark. In art, it reers to the technique of applying subtly blended shades of gray to imitate tha varying intensities of light and shadow that occur when light is directed toward and reflected off 3-D forms.
to squint tightly with your eyes, to the point where nearly everything is about to disappear and where you see mostly highlights and deep shadows, you can better estemate between low value gradients.
Values between shadow and light. This catagory has an infinite number of them.
Brighter than the lights. Created where the surface is shiny or has a bump or ridge.
A technique of building up shadows with parallel lines; when a second set of lines crosses the first, it is called Cross Hatching.
A straight line or series of parallel lines moving across the surface of a 3 Dimensional object from the outside edge (contour) of the object to the other.
A method of creating highlights and mid-tones in a dry media drawing. Mid-tones are laid first, and then an eraser is used to lift away particles of the drawing media to reveal the lightness of the paper beneath.
The visual outer shape of an object.
Much closer to the value of the shadow areas than it is to the value of the highlights. They almost disappear into the shadows as you squint.
An efective way to represent and organize space in a pictorial work of art.
When selected line, tones and shapes are given emphasis in a drawing they will often imply direction.
based on measured repetition of features in a drawing. the more related elements are stressed, and especially if the accents and visual pace "tempo" are varied, the more pronounced it is in a work of art.
In drawing it generally refers to relative size only and is commonly used to compare the exterior dimensions "width and height" of a shape or an object, the relative size of its constituents parts, the size of any of it aonstituent parts in relation to the whole, or the overall size of shape or object as compared with another object.
A line from which a weight is suspended in order to determine verticality or depth.
The imaginary horizontal plane at the same height as the average person's eye. Also refered to as the Horizon line.
Referes to black, white, gray drawing, or a drawing made in a single color.
the rubbing of the drawing medium into the paper, usually with the pointed end of a paper tightly roled into a stick. It produces a soft atmospheric effect.
A means by which the artist suggests 3 Dimensional space and depth in a drawing using one or two point perspective.
A perceptive device based on the observation that objects recede in space. Light fades, color dull and details become obscured.
A form thatis viewed in such a way that its normal proportions visually appear shortened or compressed.
Objects that are different or similar but maintain or share a common shape that links them as repetitive visual element.
The actual flat surface, or opaque plane, on which a drawing is made. It also refers to the imaginary, transparent "Window of Nature" that represents the format of a drawing mentally superimposed over real-world subject matter.
An object that serves as the subject of the drawing, as destinguished from the backround.
The space surrounding a positive shape of solid; that which is not occupide or filled with an object.
Dark images with deep, long shadows have been associated with mystery, excitement and an unsettling sense if anticipation. Latin term meaning that which is dark and mysterious. Caravaggio introduced this in the 17th Century.
Underlies a work's impact as a completed event. All the principles and elements working together.
Schema or Schemata
A simplifide yet accurate sketch of the outline of an object used as the plan for a finished drawing.
A highly illusionistic 3 Dimensional pictorial effect. "To fool the eye"
Concerned with describing real world subjects in an understandable way.
A gradually changing of texture, value or pattern, often indicating spatial recession, curving of a volumetric surface or change in light striking a surface.
