WHAT ARE THE ELEMENTS BEING USED BY THE PAINTER? WHEN LOOKING AT A WORK OF ART, WHAT ELEMENTS DO YOU NOTICE?
A line is an identifiable path created by a point moving in space. It is one-dimensional and can vary in width, direction, and length. Lines often define the edges of a form. Lines can be horizontal, vertical, or diagonal, straight or curved, thick or thin. They lead your eye around the composition and can communicate information through their character and direction. Horizontal lines suggest a feeling of rest or repose because objects parallel to the earth are at rest. In this landscape, horizontal lines also help give a sense of space. The lines delineate sections of the landscape, which recede into space. They also imply continuation of the landscape beyond the picture plane to the left and right.

LOOK CAREFULLY AT THE TWO PAINTINGS 1. OBSERVE THE COLOR, LINES, SHAPES AND TEXTURE USED 2. HOW IS TEXTURE USED IN EACH PAINTING? 3. WHICH PAINTING HAS A MORE CUBE SHAPE? 4. HOW DID THE ARTIST USED THE ART ELEMENT TO HELP ESTABLISH THE MOOD IN EACH PAINTING? 5. THOUGH THE TWO PAINTINGS ARE DISSIMILAR, THEY ARE ALIKE IN SOME WAYS. WHAT PARTS OF THE PAINTINGS ARE ALIKE? HOW DO THEY DIFFER?
