Heart #2 - Games of Hearts
This piece was more of a fun piece to create. I used pieces from four different games to design a heart of fun. My whole family loves to play games and put puzzles together so I thought how appropriate it would be to design a heart out of something we love. The games included Othello, Rummikub, Checkers and Blokus.
Repetition - Yes, repetition in all the games pieces and color patterns to design the heart
Variety - Yes, pieces from four different games
Rhythm - Yes, the alternating color patterns of the black a white Othello pieces in the middle. Also the alternating red and black checkers along the outside of the heart. Just the fact that I used all game pieces supports a rhythm to the piece
Balance - Near Symmetrical, the inside red and green pieces would not match perfectly to support a symmetrical piece and neither would the numbers on the rummikub pieces
Emphasis - Color, I believe your eye is drawn all over the piece rather than one specific focal point
Line - I see vertical and horizontal lines within the green and red Blokus pieces in the center of the heart, overall shape of a heart.
Texture - Real texture, it exists in real life
