Elements and Principles of Art Value & Space By Aydin & Isaac
S p a c e Space refers to the distances or areas around, between or within components of a piece. There are two types of space: positive and negative space. Positive space refers to the space of a shape representing the subject matter. Negative space refers to the space around or between the subject matter.
LANDSCAPES Landscapes show space because of there width and length. Landscape art is usually painted with natural scenery such as mountains, valleys, rivers, trees and forests. Here is an example of landscape art
two-dimensional Three- dimensional PORTRAITS Portraits show depth which is a sign of space. Portraits relate to the element space because of it’s three-dimensional and two-dimensional similiairaties.
Cy Twombly used a lot of space by showing depth in his paintings. As you can see Cy had painted the kisses in random places and also made them fade.
Example 1 This painting by Tara Rieke “Space Hand” this demonstrates space because it has a two-dimensional and three-dimensional background.
Example 2 This painting by Leonardo Da Vinci “Mona Lisa” demonstrates space because with the background shows depth in the picture.
Example 3 This painting by Salvador Dali “The Face of War” demonstrates space because of it’s shadow and depth.
Example 4 This painting by Jackson Pollock “#306” demonstrates negative space because of it darkness and lightness.
Definition Value is the lightness and darkness of colour.
Types of Value Highlight is the lightest value. Shadow is the darkest value. The light color of value is a tint. The dark color of value is a shade. High-Key is where the picture is all light values. Low-Key is where the picture is all dark values.
Example 1 This painting by Lilli Pell shows value because on the sheep's fur, it shows tint. It also shows tint on the ground where it is walking. On other parts of the ground, under the branches of the trees, the painting shows shade.
Example 2 I think Vincent Van Gogh used Value in his painting “Sunflowers,” created in August 1888 because under the vase, the orange colour is shade. On the vase and on the sunflower pedals, there is tint.
Example 3 Salvador Dali’s painting “The Persistence of Memory” demonstrates value because in the bottom of the painting, all the colours are low-key. In the top of the painting, the colours are more of a tint.
Example 4 Leonardo Da Vinci’s “Mona Lisa” demonstrates lots of value. Her hair, clothes, and some of the background is the darkest shade. Her skin is a light tint. The rest of the background is a shade.
