Foundations of Art and Design Paperback
by Alan Pipes
"Foundations of Art and Design", in its new and updated edition, guides artists and designers through the fundamentals of their fields and provides insights into putting these principles into practice.
Part 1 covers the elements that can fill a blank page - points and lines, shapes, textures and colours - to create a sense of space, time and motion.
Part 2 reveals how to develop unity and harmony, balance, scale and proportion, contrast and emphasis and rhythm to achieve a successful whole.
Comprehensive yet accessible, with a wide range of illustrations drawn from all areas of art and design, this is an ideal book for students embarking on course in graphic design, fine art and illustration as well as allied courses in interior design, fashion design, textile design, industrial design, product design and printmaking.
