Study Guide: Surrealism and Two Point Perspective Surrealism: An art movement that relates ideas of the subconscious, dreams and the unordinary. Artists: Salvador Dali, Rene Magritte, MC Escher, Max Ernst, Joan Miro Ways to create a surreal style artwork: Transformation- morphing an ordinary object into something unordinary Imagination Juxtaposition- combining two unrelated objects in the same picture to raise ideas and questions about the artwork. Dislocation- putting something within an unnatural environment Subconscious- dream like Two-Point Perspective- used to show an object from an angle. Object appears to go into space towards two vanishing points. The drawing begins with a vertical line- or the edge- instead of a shape (one point perspective). Parts of perspective: Horizon line- your eye level. Vanishing point is located on this line. All object closer to this line are smaller and farther off in the distance. Vanishing point- where all the edges of an object appear to go towards in the drawing. Orthogonal line- the imaginary lines that connect the objects to the vanishing points. Birds eye view- a top view. Horizon line is high, objects are drawn below it so you see the tops of the objects. Ants eye view- bottom view- you are small- the objects are taller than you. You will not see the tops of the objects. The horizon line is lower, and objects are drawn taller than the horizon line. Floating objects are above the horizon line and you see underneath them or the bottoms. Eye- level- objects are drawn directly overlapping the horizon line so you do not see the top or the bottom. Perspective helps to create the illusion of space in a drawing and it first began during the Renaissance. Design principles: You may have used EMPHASIS: because your graphite drawing of the hallway stands out different from the rest of the colored pencil drawing. You may have used CONTRAST so you can see all parts of your drawing different from each other. Colored pencil technique: Press harder with colored pencil to deposit more color, close up the gaps of the white texture of the paper, and blend colors more. Values of color also appear darker when you press harder.
