colour and line

  1. 1. Formal Elements
  2. 2. Line Definition & Theory • A line shows a "path" between two points. • A line can be curved, zig zag, horizontal, implied etc. • Lines can imply motion and suggest direction or orientation. • A line can also be implied and is then filled in by the mind when several points are positioned geometrically within a frame. • The direction of a line can also imply certain feelings • Horizontal lines imply tranquillity, peace and harmony • Vertical lines imply power and strength. • Diagonal lines imply movement, action and change. • Curved lines or S shaped lines imply quiet, calm and sensual feelings. • Lines that converge imply depth, scale and distance - a fence or roadway converges into the distance provides the illusion that a flat two-dimensional image has three-dimensional depth.
  3. 3. ARTIST STUDY - Keith Yahrling Born 1985 in Camden, NJ, currently works and resides in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania. He studied at Rhode Island School of Design and The University of the Arts, Philadelphia. I believe studying in living in urban areas effected is work since cities are a hub of consumerism. I liked his work since it was different and the bright colours stood out to me. I think that the repetition and the way the pattern fills the frame is very effective for the message of abundance, waste and consumerism portrayed in his work. His work features a variety of line direction which to me reflects the complexity of the issue is portraying. It also reminds me of the issue of overpopulation as the image is crowded and full. I chose this image since I love the way he shows overpopulation and crowds without any people through the repetition and variety of line. The high brightness also and low contrast makes it stark and real.

  5. 5. five best line images images that need work They are strong images since there is strong repetion of line. The images are also well exposed and I like the way the pattern fills the frame since it emphasises the lines. Some of the images will need slight editing for exapmle being made black and white and upping the contrast. These images can be linked to reflect mass problem of consumerism. I find that the repetition reflects the sheer amount of people and products in the UK and I used the repetition of UK brands to emphasise that. The harsh use of line also reflects the harshness of the problem. Thanks to this these images strongly link to Kieth Yahrlings work. I paired these images together because they compare the differences in nature and construction however they are linked in there strong use of line and pattern. They do not link to consumerism like Yahrlings however I used the idea of filling the frame as he did.
  6. 6. Editing Before, I brought down the exposure and then on the curves I brought up the contrast and then saturation I then cropped the image to put focus on the man. The implied lines on the stairs bring your eyes to him aswell as the banister creating motion. I cropped it so that the the central line is straight. This vertical line reflects the power and drags your eyes into the middle of the shot. I changed the curves so the brightness came down and contrast came up – this emphasises the lines and colours. Finally I put the shot in black and white to simplify since I didn’t find the colours were adding anything
  7. 7. Editing 2 Although I put them in in black and white which is different to Yahrlings style it features high contrast, retail, and patterns that fill the frame.
  8. 8. Colour The bright yellow against the purple is complementary colours allowing Lizzo (subject) to stand out and the lightness of the colours set the happy scene. The colours are also slightly muted making it less harsh on eye. Vivid analogous of red to yelllow Muted, cold colours Highly saturated with vivid neon colours. Due to the location of the light source there is high emphasis on shadows. The bright colours could imply that the hand is reaching out to something positive and exciting even if we don’t know what it is. Its almost reflective of The Creation of Adam but in a more modern take. Color (American English), or colour (Commonwealth English), is the characteristic of human visual perception described through color categories, with names such as red, orange, yellow, green, blue, or purple. Subtractive colours are made with ink Additive colours are made with light •Analogous are colours that are adjacent to each other on the colour wheel, e.g. yellow and green •Complementary colours are opposite to each other on the colour wheel, e.g. Blue-violet and yellow, represent colours positioned across from each other on the colour wheel.
