PRINCIPALS of DESIGN (5 of 16)

The principles of design are the fundamental parts of an artwork.  Identifying these principals is one way to understand an artwork.


#5 - VALUE



     Value in art refers to the lightness and darkness of color and is often described in varying levels of contrast.  


     A value scale shows the range of tones from white, which is the lightest, to black which is the darkest.  The closer together the values are on a scale, the less contract we see.  





     Artists utilize a range of techniques to show value, including use of line and intensity of color.  




Henry Ossawa Tanner, Artist
The Banjo Lesson, 1893

Pablo Picasso


Pablo Picasso

A favorite of mine - I love his work from later in his life when he started the Cubist era.  

As a significant influence on 20th-century art, Pablo Picasso was an innovative artist who experimented and innovated during his 92-plus years on earth. He was not only a master painter but also a sculptor, printmaker, ceramics artist, etching artist and writer.

PRINCIPALS of DESIGN - SHAPE (4 of 16)

The principles of design are the fundamental parts of an artwork.  Identifying these principals is one way to understand an artwork.


#4 - SHAPE


     A shape is an enclosed area of space created through lines and other elements of the composition.  Shapes can be geometric or free-form.  

     Geometric shapes are precise - like squares, triangles, rectangles, polygons, etc. 








     Organic shapes are free-formed and curved, like people, animals, trees, and other natural elements.   (Below chart also includes geometric as mentioned above).







Look at shape:




Pablo Picasso, Artist

Three Musicians, 1911

PRINCIPALS of DESIGN - FORM (3 of 16)

The principles of design are the fundamental parts of an artwork.  Identifying these principals is one way to understand an artwork.


#3 - FORM


    Form is an element of design closely related to shape, but form is always three demensional.  A form is measurable by length, width, and height, and encloses volume.  Forms can be actual 3-D forms created with sculpture or architecture, or they can be implied forms where the artist creates the illusion of the form onto a flat surface.  

While a two-demensional shape can be seen from only one side, a three-demensional shape can be viewed from any side.  








PRINCIPALS of DESIGN - TEXTURE (2 of 16)

The principles of design are the fundamental parts of an artwork.  Identifying these principals is one way to understand an artwork.


#2 - TEXTURE


       Texture refers to the tactile qualities of a surface -- the way objects actually feel or the way they look like they would feel.


       Sculptures, ceramics, mixed-media collages, fiber art, etc., may have bumpy or varied surfaces - actual textures you can feel.  A painting, drawing, print, or other two-dimensional work can be made to look like a textured surface - implied texture.  

Great example of line work in art:



Jan Van Eyck - Artist
Arnolfini Portrait, 1434

PRINCIPALS of DESIGN - LINE (1 of 16)

The principles of design are the fundamental parts of an artwork.  Identifying these principals is one way to understand an artwork.


#1 - LINE

         A line can be described as the path of a point moving through space.  In an artwork, there are many types of line.  We can look for the direction of the line, the feeling of the line, the quality of the line, and how the lines move our eye through artworks.  


Line can be described in many ways:


                 active - passive                            bold - delicate              
           flowing - light                              straight - curved
           thick - thin                                   long - short
           broken - continuous                   geometric - organic
           implied - actual                          precise - irregular
           contour - outline                        vertical - horizontal
           perpendicular - parallel            zig-zag - direct


Great example of line work in art:



Marc Chagall, Artist
I and the Village, 1911

     This is the first in my series on women.  Figurative women. Women who have something to say, some emotion that they are showing.  I am not sure how many women I will paint.  I have this voice in my heart that is telling me to do these paintings.  It speaks to me every day, all day!  I will give in to that voice.

     So here I start with "Waiting".  Why?  Because all females have experienced the "Waiting".  Waiting for a husband or boyfriend to finally put down his cell phone.  Or "Waiting" for a lover to ring the doorbell.  Or maybe she just "Waiting" for her Uber ride to bring her to the ballet.               

     It's whatever you want, whatever you see when you look at her.  For all those times you too have stood, dressed in your best,    "Waiting".

Summer 2010:  Tucson, Arizona -  a beautiful area in the southwestern part of the United States.  Hot, dry heat that is a haven for cactus plants that grow taller than many people! The sun is intense in Tucson!  A true delight to a painter’s eye.  Sunset is a time of vibrant colors and textures.  Here we find the raw unadulterated beauty of God's magnificant hand.  For me, it conjures up memories of the wild west movies I watched as a child, and John Wayne.  And perhaps for some, its beauty stirs us to become introspective, activating a new love for our land, and perhaps allows us a new beginning.  Enjoy.





The painting is placed next to standard size flower vases on my fireplace mantel so that you can visualize the actual size.

Emily - The Dancing Queen

Progression Steps of Portrait in Oils - Step Three

Step Three brings me very very close to finishing up this beautiful dancing queen!  I finished up the tutu, the floor and added some tossed rose petals.  

But Step Three leaves me feeling I still have a lot more to work on. Emily's face and hair needs more detail.  Certain areas need shading.  

I am pleased so far with the progress with the art piece.

Emily - The Dancing Queen

Progression Steps of Portrait in Oils - Step Two

1.  Just added more paint color and more detail.  Worked on Emily's face a little bit . . . but for some reason a little hesitatant - guess maybe because her head is titled up and not looking straight on.   Still painting 'lean'.  

2.  Put down the first 'lean' painting of the dance floor. More paint and design needed here.

Lots more still to do.  But enjoying this painting of my youngest granddaughter and am happy with the results so far. 

[Dancers sometimes wear only one shoe so that they can spin - reason for the one shoe].

Emily - The Dancing Queen Step One

Private Collection

16 x 20

Emily - The Dancing Queen

Progression Steps of Portrait in Oils - Step One



1.  I painted the entire board and sides in Ivory Black Grumbacher's Acrylic paint - straight from the tube.  No mixing at all, and let it dry.

2.  I drew my picture of Emily with white conte pencil.

3.  I blocked in my colors with a very light touch.  This is called painting "lean".


Once this drys I will do another layer of paint until the colors are the way I want them.

(Parts of her are black because it it the underpainting and I have not yet painted those areas).

Portrait in Oils - Step Five and Finished

Commissioned Portrait

Baby MayLan

Portrait in Oils - Step Five and Finished!



I will be giving this portrait to May Lan's mom on Sunday, so I can't really post this until Monday afternoon!  

In Step Five and Finished I worked on details.  I finished up baby's eyes, hair, skin and added more shadow details to her dress.  I touched up the field of flowers a bit, too.  You many notice that the face contains a lot of detail and the rest of the painting is in an (unfocused) Impressionistic style.  Many artist use this technique to cause the viewer to focus on the most important part of the art work.  Such a cute baby!

Portrait in Oils . . . . Continued . . . . Step Four

Commissioned Portrait
Oil Paints
16 x 20

Baby MayLan

Portrait in Oils - Step Four:


This is Step Four in this portrait oil painting process.  I have decided, because I want this painting as perfect as I can paint it, to take it slowly.  I work on it about 3 hours a week.  I have to be patient and let it dry enough so that adding more paint on top of other paint does not cause it to get muddy.  

THIS IS STILL A WORK IN PROGRESS - however, one more 3 hour sitting and it will be completed.  I have made that decision.  Which is a tough decision for all artists to make - when a painting is done.  

I still want to finish up the flower field, work on the eyes, and put a few highlights in the hair, and paint the sides to match the front so that the painting flows.  

So here is my Step Four:  I added contrasts in the hair tie, the dress and started the flower field.  I touched up the skin on the arms just a tiny bit so that they would move forward from baby's dress.  

I am enjoying this slow process, and learning to be patient with my painting at the same time.

These paintings are shown still on their easels because they are still wet!  Straight from the studio, so I am not able to set them up to take a proper photo.  
Seems like I spend much of my time 'watching paint dry'!  But, honestly, I wouldn't have it any other way!
