The formal elements


Line is much more than what it simply is. It is also a vision and a feeling. Line consists of marks that can be drawn, or it can be the external edge of a form or shape. The two main types of line are straight or curved. I chose my drawing for the element of line as i think the lines between the shapes are distinctive and pulls the hole image together. Without the lines, the drawing would be random floating objects with no meaning, however the line join each segment and brings the picture together. The lines wotks particularly effective in this piece and I also liked how the lines almost look like thin rivers flowing into eachother between the islands (shapes).
