Elements and principles of art are very important and at least 1 or 2 of them are used in every painting. You can’t paint, draw, or do any art without these elements/principles. A lot of painters pick a few and use them in their paintings. Some painters even make series of art. Here are a few of them. Line is an element of art. It can be any shape or size. It could also be any pattern. Lines have an unlimited number of styles. Andy Warhol is a line artist (for example, Campbell’s Soup Box is one of his works) and does many drawings. Lines are very important in art because you need them to set the template. Color is another element. Color is unlimited which means that you can shade or tint a color as much as you want. Color can be comparable and contrastable. It can also be complementary which means opposites on the color wheel. Analogous colors are colors next to each other on the color wheel. For example, the painting literally called Yellow, Orange, Yellow, Light Orange by Mark Rothko is a painting that uses only color. Space can be positive which means the space is taken. Space can be negative which means the space is empty. There are three different types of grounds under the space heading. First is the foregrounds which is usually focused on the main part of the scene or character. Middle Grounds are usually focused on the secondary item/scene. Backgrounds are usually not important but is there to have a setting. Any and every painter uses this kind of painting. Rhythm is one out of seven principles. It is usually repeated over and over. It is like music, almost having a beat to it. It is constant and must be given some emphasis (another principle) or else it will be boring. For example, The Kitchen IV by Marina Abramovic has rhythm to it because it is the fourth in a series. Last, but not least, Unity, which is another principle. Unity means that a painting is compacted together. The painting “works together” with itself. It has a lot to do with symmetry and asymmetry in Unity paintings. You will see overlapping in most of these paintings. For example, Several Circles by Wasily Kandinsky. This painting uses a lot of overlapping. Art is limitless. There are endless amounts of things to draw and/or paint in this world. The elements used on their own are ok, but when you use multiple, your art will no doubt look like a professional painted it. Bringing these elements together has created some of the best artworks in history. You can do this to by using the elements I talked about or other ones.
