elements and princip

what are the elements of design? space, line, shape, color, texture.
what are the principals of design? balance,rhythm,proportion/scale,emphasis and unity.
what is the principal of repetition? when the design is copied or repeated.
how does texture affect color? smooth surfaces relfect more light than rough surfaces making them brighter and lighter. also, rough surfaces absorb more light making them look darker and less intense.
what do curved lines suggest? adds a soft, graceful effect to the designand to many will make design busy..
what is the difference between vertical, horizontal and radial balance? vertical is when the top adn the bottom parts are equal. horizontal is when the left adn right parts are equal . radial is when the elements radiate out from design.
what do diagonal lines suggest? actions, movement, and excitment.
what is space he area provided for a particular purpose.
what are the 4 types of rhythm? gradation,radiation,repetition, and continious line.
what is an asymmetrical balance? give an example. .parts if the design are not identical, but are equal in visul weight. example: one big item on one side of the mantel looks equal when you put a lot of little items on the other side.
what is the difference between vertical and horizontal lines? vertical leads your eye up and horizontal leads the eye from left to right.
what is the golden mean? . 3 to 5 ratio.
what is the difference between shape and form? shape is 2-d and form is 3-d
what are the 5 types of balance? symmertical , asymmetrical, vertical, horizontal, and radial.

What happens when you use a continuous line? creats line for the eye to follow.
What is another name for symmetrical balance? formal.
What is another name for asymmetrical balance? informal
What is the difference between gradation and radiation? gradation increases/decreases in size and one element of the design changes. radiation is when lines/ designs move out from the center point
