UNDERSTANDING FORM (Lines & Edges, Volume & Mass)

This is part of a new series Donna is introducing to help you understand form. Form is the structure and perception of an object or objects. Without the understanding of a form our work looks flat, out of whack and unreal. Every object in life takes up space and volume but if we don’t understand how the structure is perceived and put together, it just won’t look right. We will study and review the characteristics of lines and edges (contours) and then move into volume and mass which will be help with our understanding of space and spacial relationships. Seems a little complex and that’s why we will limit our exercises to just these few elements.

Every object in life takes up space and volume but if we don’t understand how the structure is perceived and put together, it just won’t look right.
