Week 10 - Nov. 16

Texture and Directing the Eye

Idea 2

Welcome to Week 10! In Module 9, "Tonal Value and Colour" we looked at the complex relationship between tonal shifts, and hue (colour).

This term, we have covered the elements and principals of design, and specifically studied composition, shape, line, value, and colour. We have also studied conceptual concerns and perspective. This week we will cover emphasis (directing the eye), and texture.


Think about the specific choices you've been implementing in your FA. Have you been carefully considering both formal and conceptual concerns?
