Emphasis

Emphasis

The principle of art that makes one part of

the work dominant over the other parts.


Color

If an artist chooses to emphasize one element, all the

other elements of the work are made subordinate or

less important. The dominant or most important

element affects the viewer’s perception of the

whole work.


Color

Focal point

Sometimes a specific area in a work is

emphasized. This area, called the focal

point, is the first part of the work to attract

the attention of the viewer.


Color

What is the focal point and how can you tell?


Color

Ways to create emphasis and a focal point.


Color

Contrast

One way to create a focal point is to place an element that contrasts with the rest of the work in that area. One large shape, for example, will stand out among small ones. One angular, geometric shape will be noticed first among rounded free form shapes. A bright color will dominate low intensity colors, while a light area will dominate a dark design. An object with a smooth texture becomes a focal point in a design with rough textures.


Color

What ways are contrast used in the following pieces?

Does it create a focal point? What is the focal point?

Color

Isolation

Artists use isolation to create a focal point and thereby emphasize one part of the work. They do this by putting one object alone, apart from all the other objects. This draws the viewer’s eye to the isolated object.

Color

Location

A viewer is normally drawn toward the center of a visual area. Thus, something near the center will probably be noticed first. Because the exact center is a predictable place, most artists place the object they wish to emphasize a bit off center.

Edward Hopper


Color

Convergence

When many elements in a work seem to point to one item, that item becomes a focal point. This technique can be created with a very obvious radial arrangement of lines. It can also be achieved through a more subtle arrangement of elements.

Unusual

In a work of art, an object that is out of the ordinary can become a focal point. In a row of soldiers standing at attention, the one standing on his head will be noticed first. The unexpected will always draw the viewer’s attention.
