Assignment 1A

Contrast Elements -

     Color- tint of blue green, tint of golden yellow, and tint of orange red.

    Value- changes in values provide depth.

     Shape- rectangular, circular, palmate leaves with both a smooth edge and a serrated edge, pear shapes, and curvilinear lines.

     Textures- smoothness of bowl, curvilinear lines in the background, jagged edge of leaf, bowl with unmixed lines of color in design, smooth and even black outlines that define boundaries.

     Thematic Contrast. There is a variety of shapes and color as a unifier. The elements of this photo (I thought it was a painting!), are balanced and organized to create harmony.

Attributes of Relationship- The harmonious relationship of the colors, values, line, and contrast make this photo well thought out by the artist. I love the tiny bit of orange red down at the bottom. We almost don't see it. But, it adds so very much to the entire composition.

Cross Reference - Yes, color, shapes, and textures create contrast and relationship.
