EMPHASIS

WHAT IS EMPHASIS ?
Is a principle of designs wherein the area is the first one
that attracts attention in a composition. This area is more
important when compared to the other objects or elements
in a composition. This can be by contrast of
values, more colors, and placement in the format.
Methods :


DOMINANCE
Dominance describes a situation where something dominates (is
more important or more noticeable than its surroundings).
Information is rarely of uniform interest in art (except in wallpaper).
Most art is used to communicate -- to tell a story or present a point
of view. There is usually a focal point, a place where the action
begins. You should be able to control what will be noticed first,
what is dominant in an image, and where the viewer's attention will
go from there.

Artists can emphasize color, value, shapes, or
other art elements to achieve dominance.
Various kinds of contrast can be used to emphasize
a center of interest.
Subordination is defined as minimizing or toning
down other compositional elements in order to bring
attention to the focal point.
FOCAL POINT
Focal point refers to an area in the composition
that has the most significance, an area that the
artist wants to draw attention to as the most
important aspect.

ISOLATION
Isolation is a kind of placement -- where something is put. An item
that stands apart from its surroundings will be more noticeable. This
is not likely to make an item be noticed first but can make one item
stand out.
IMPORTANCE OF EMPHASIS :
There is an order in a design. You want the viewer to
follow the correct direction, getting information in the
correct order. To do this you need to force them to a
specific start point on the design.

It gets the viewer's attention.

WHAT IS PATTERN?
pattern is a combination of elements such as line,
color, shape, and texture repeated in a recurring
and regular arrangement.
PATTERNS in two-dimensional work of art are
observed through the repeated usage of motif. MOTIF
is a complete unit in a larger design. It is an element of
a pattern, image, or part of one, or theme. A motif
may be repeated in a design or composition, often
many times, or may just occur once in a work.
REPETITION & RHYTHM :
* Repetition refers to one object or shape repeated.

* Rhythm is a combination of elements repeated, but
with variations.
