The chosen image from the New York Times web site about a big crush between a singular car and a horse is going to be analyzed from five different perspectives or elements ofdesign; lines, shapes, form, color and texture, but first able we must define what are each of these mentioned aspects and how are they used to analyze an image.
* Lines: Line is the basic element thatrefers to the continuous movement of a point along a surface, such as by a pencil or brush. The edges of shapes and forms also create lines. It is the basic component of a shape drawn on paper. Linesand curves are the basic building blocks of two dimensional shapes like a house's plan. Every line has length, thickness, and direction. There are curve, horizontal, vertical, diagonal, zigzag, wavy,parallel, dash, and dotted lines.
* Shapes: A shape is defined as an area that stands out from the space next to or around it due to a defined or implied boundary, or because of differences ofvalue, color, or texture. Shapes can also show perspective by overlapping. They can be geometric or organic. Shapes in house decor and interior design can be used to add interest, style, theme to adesign like a door. Shape in interior design depends on the function of the object like a kitchen cabinet door. Natural shapes forming patterns on wood or stone may help increase visual appeal in interiordesign. In a landscape, natural shapes, such as trees contrast with geometric such as houses.
* Form: Form is any three dimensional object. Form can be measured, from top to bottom (height), sideto side (width), and from back to front (depth). Form is also defined by light and dark. There are two types of form, geometric (man-made) and natural (organic form). Form may be created by thecombining of two or more shapes. It may be enhanced by tone, texture and color. It can be illustrated or constructed.
* Color: Color is seen either by the way light reflects off a surface, or in...
