What allows artwork is the sensitivity and illustration of passion. Every point in space has different strength, which can be demonstrated in artwork by black and white and all the gray shades between. In fact, art workers can fluent structures by juxtaposing surfaces of several strength; by utilizing just color (of the same concentration), one can only demonstrate figurative sizes. Thus, the vital means of art are dissimilar from ideological indications, such as geometrical signs, several points of view and organization (standpoint), and signs. For example, a painter recognizes that a specific white wall has different passion at each point, due to shadows and manifestations from nearby objects, but ideally, a white wall is still a white wall in pitch gloominess. In technical drawing, thickness of line is also ideal, separating perfect outlines of an item within a perceptual frame different from the one used by art workers.

Color and tone

Color and tone are the heart of artwork as pitch and rhythm are of music. Color is highly slanted, but has observable psychological consequences, although these can vary from one culture to the next. Black is associated with sorrow in the West, but in the East, white is. Some artists, theoreticians, writers and scientists, as well as Goethe, Kandinsky, and Newton, have written their own color theory.

artists deal practically with pigments, so "blue" for a painter can be any of the blues: phtalocyan, Paris blue, indigo, cobalt, ultramarine, and so on. Psychological, figurative significances of color are not severely speaking significations of artwork. Colors only add to the potential, originated context of meanings, and because of this the insight of a artwork is highly subjective. The similarity with music is quite clear—sound in music (like "C") is equivalent to light in artwork, "shades" to dynamics, and coloration is to art as definite timbre of musical instruments to music—though these do not necessarily form a melody, but can add different contexts to it.

Non-traditional elements

Latest art-workers have spread the practice of art considerably to include, for example, collage, which launched with Cubism and is not artwork in the severe sense. Some latest art workers integrate different materials such as sand, cement, straw or wood for their texture. Examples of this are the works of Jean Dubuffet and Anselm Kiefer. There is a growing community of artists who use computers to paint color onto a digital canvas utilizing programs such as Adobe Photoshop, Corel art workers, and many others. These images can be printed onto old canvas if needed.


Rhythm is important in art as well as in music. If one defines rhythm as "a pause included into a sequence", then there can be rhythm in arts. These pauses allow creative force to intervene and add new creations—form, melody, coloration. The distribution of form, or any kind of information is of crucial importance in the given work of art and it directly affects the artistic value of that work. This is because the artistic value is functionality dependent, i.e. the freedom (of movement) of sensitivity is perceived as beauty. Free flow of energy, in art as well as in other forms of "techne", directly contributes to the artistic value.
