I liked how Loor would position seating so that people would be facing only the interior of the building or key spaces like the theater-like space or the pool. He also created a sense of security by allowing everyone who entered to be seen from all parts of the building. When I was reading about Loos’s design techniques and how he directs people’s vision I started thinking about Eyes of the Skin and how Pallasmaa described how our senses work. He does stress that vision is not the most important sense, but this is obviously a major focus of Loor’s design. And it is fascinating how Loor manipulates this sense.
The shallow depth of field that is seen also adds to the mysterious reasoning behind the reason of hiding her arms. I really liked this image and the way it creates questions within the viewer’s mind such as ‘What is this photo supposed to be about?’ and ‘Where are her arms?’ The use of tone is remarkable and it works extremely well to ensure that
The colonnades floor is paved with terrazzo. The next area I enter is the Triclinium which is the main dining room and where guests were entertained. The gorgeous floor is inlaid stone and imitates the one found in the House of Deer in Herculaneum. The ceiling is arched with recessed panels. And illustrated with illusionist scenes with elements inspired by the House of the Fruit Orchard in Pompeii.
This painting gives the illusion of form because it has three-dimensional aspects due to Picasso’s use of lines and shading. The diagonal lines in the two upper corners of the painting give depth to the room and the incorporation of simple shades and values of the color gray gives three-dimensionality to his figures. The next visual element that will be discussed is shape. Picasso uses both organic and geometric shapes all throughout the painting. He uses organic shapes to create the heads and other body parts of the figures and uses geometric shapes to create the ground and other structural and background elements of the room.
The advertisement makes you believe if you wear this brand, your face will soft and smooth. The company wants the audience to feel irresistible by wearing their makeup. By the way the model looks and the words in the advertisement. Maggard2 I found the Revlon ad by searching Google images. The photo is very realistic.
As with such shapes, there was a general lack of roundness in the painting which I found interesting, as such regular shapes paired with the intensity of the irregular colors perfectly juxtaposed one another, creating a uniform widespread focal point throughout the entire painting. In terms of design principles, Diebenkorn employs a number of such devices. Though one would expect linear shapes to create precise points of symmetry, the presence of so many rectangles and other geometric elements scattered throughout this piece resulted in creating a highly asymmetrical effect. Contrast is also heavily used, as was previously mentioned, the acute distinction between inconsistent color and uniform shape causes the viewer’s attention to be drawn towards the work as a whole, instead of a singular point of focus. The use of variety may additionally be noted.
In this painting, Mucha uses a thick outline to surround the figure and thin lines to provide detail inside it. Look at the difference between the line of her chin and the line of her jaw. It's consistent all around the figure. At the juncture of the arm and breast, we can even see a little feathering One of the hallmarks of Art Nouveau
The original painting can be found in Tate Gallery in London, Great Britain. “Clarinet and Bottle of Wine on a Mantelpiece” is extremely geometric, architectural painting, it has many lines and the colors used are very neutral. The background is kind of light grey-green. The foreground consists of many toned colors like blacks, browns, grays, grayish-greens. There are many strokes, but the most visible and the longest are two black lines going from the top of the painting to the bottom.
A stage scene may be broadly flooded with soft, even lighting, revealing every object equally, or it may be illuminated by highly localized lighting on the actors only - or anything in between. So, composition in lighting must reveal actors, objects and scenery in proportion to their importance, by building a visual picture. These basic qualities of light are; intensity, form, color, direction and movement. These are the lighting designer's tools. Using of spotlight is also needed.
Colors are strongly separated and very limited in numbers: white, red, blue, black. There is a strong contrast of light and dark in the area of the skull that goes from the eyes to the mouth, but, once again, it is depicted with a strong separation of the different areas. The placement of red vertical bars on the side and the white-blues drapes on the back of the skull gives a sense of total abstraction and suspension of form and lines. In my opinion there are two different “souls” that coexist in this beautiful painting”: a call to mysticism and a strong nationalism tied into a painting that seems to suggest a strong connection between America and religion. The skull removed from its natural environment, placed in a suspended state in the
