The Elements of Design -LINE



The elements of design: LINE
A line Actual or implied creates a boundary ,defines an edge or indicates a direction.


Characteristic of Line are: Width - thick, thin, tapering, uneven Length - long, short, continuous, broken Direction- horizontal, vertical, diagonal, curving, perpendicular, oblique, parallel, radial, zigzag Focus- sharp, blurry, fuzzy, choppy Feeling- sharp, jagged, graceful, smooth

Types of Line:
Outlines- Lines made by the edge of an object or its silhouette.
Contour Lines- Lines that describe the shape of an object and the interior detail. Gesture Lines- Lines that are energetic and catch the movement and gestures of an active figure. Sketch Lines- Lines that capture the appearance of an object or impression of a place.
Calligraphic Lines- Greek word meaning "beautiful writing." Precise, elegant handwriting or lettering done by hand. Also artwork that has flowing lines like an elegant handwriting.
Implied Line- Lines not actually drawn but created by a group of objects seen from a distance. Implied line is the direction an object is pointing to, or the direction a person is looking at. ( I like this one a lot)

An implied line is one that the viewer imagines. Value, Shapes and Color can create lines.
