Composition (visual arts)

In the visual arts, composition is the placement or arrangement of visual elements or'ingredients' in a work of art, as distinct from the subject. It can be thought of as the organization of the elements of art according to the principles of art; the composition of a picture is different from its subject, what is depicted, whether a moment from a story, a person or a place. Many subjects, for example Saint George and the Dragon, are portrayed in art, but using a great range of compositions though the two figures are the only ones shown; the term composition means'putting together' and can apply to any work of art, from music to writing to photography, arranged using conscious thought. In the visual arts, composition is used interchangeably with various terms such as design, visual ordering, or formal structure, depending on the context. In graphic design for press and desktop publishing, composition is referred to as page layout; the various visual elements, known as elements of design, formal elements, or elements of art, constitute the vocabulary with which the visual artist composes.

These elements in the overall design relate to each other and to the whole art work. The elements of design are: Line — the visual path that enables the eye to move within the piece Shape — areas defined by edges within the piece, whether geometric or organic Color — hues with their various values and intensities Texture — surface qualities which translate into tactile illusions Value — Shading used to emphasize form Form — 3-D length, width, or depth Space — the space taken up by or in between objects Lines are optical phenomena that allow the artist to direct the eye of the viewer; the optical illusion of lines do exist in nature and visual arts elements can be arranged to create this illusion. The viewer unconsciously reads near continuous arrangement of different elements and subjects at varying distances; such elements can be of dramatic use in the composition of the image. These could rigging on boats. Lines can derive from the borders of areas of differing color or contrast, or sequences of discrete elements.

Movement is a source of lines, where the blurred movement renders as a line. Subject lines contribute to both mood and linear perspective, giving the viewer the illusion of depth. Oblique lines convey a sense of movement and angular lines convey a sense of dynamism and tension. Lines can direct attention towards the main subject of picture, or contribute to organization by dividing it into compartments; the artist may exaggerate or create lines as part of their message to the viewer. Many lines without a clear subject point suggest chaos in the image and may conflict with the mood the artist is trying to evoke. Straight left lines add affection to visual arts. A line's angle and its relationship to the size of the frame influence the mood of the image. Horizontal lines found in landscape photography, can give the impression of calm and space. An image filled with strong vertical lines tends to have the impression of grandeur. Angled convergent lines give a dynamic and active effect to the image.

Angled diagonal lines produce tension in the image. The viewpoint of visual art is important because every different perspective views different angled lines; this change of perspective elicits a different response to the image. By changing the perspective only by some degrees or some centimetres lines in images can change tremendously and a different feeling can be transported. Straight lines are strongly influenced by tone and repetition in relation to the rest of the image. Compared to straight lines, curves provide a greater dynamic influence in a picture, they are generally more aesthetically pleasing, as the viewer associates them with softness. In photography, curved lines can give graduated shadows when paired with soft-directional lighting, which results in a harmonious line structure within the image. There are three properties of color. Hue, brightness or chroma, value. Hue is the name of a color and chroma refer to the intensity and strength of the color. A high chroma color is less greyed than a low chroma color.

The lightness and darkness to a color is the value. Color has the ability to work within our emotions. Given that, we can use color to create mood, it can be used as tone, light, symbol, form and contrast. Texture refers to how it looks like it may feel if it were touched. There are two ways we experience texture and optically. Different techniques can be used to create physical texture, which allows qualities of visual art to be seen and felt; this can include surfaces such as metal and wood. Optical texture is. Photography and drawings use visual texture to create a more realistic appearance. Lightness and darkness are known as value in visual art. Value deals with how we see it; the more light, reflected, the higher the value. White is the lightest value while black is the lowest or darkest value. Colors have value, for example, yellow has a high value while blue and red have a low value. If you take a black and white picture of a colorful scene, all you are left with are the values; this important element of design in painting and drawing, allows the artist to create the illusion of light through value contrast.

The term form can mean different things in visual art. Form sugges
