Exercises:8 and 9 Triangles, Rhythm and Pattern
A – Exercise 8: Real and implied triangles
No. 1 – a triangular subject
Triangular sign warning of steep cliffs.
No. 2 – Triangle by perspective converging to the top
To me the shadows at the bottom enhance the base of the triangle.
No. 3 – Inverted triangle by perspective
This is the roof line of a cloister at Watts Cemetery
No. 4 – Still-life arrangement : implied triangle with the apex at the top
No. 5 – still-life arrangement: inverted implied triangle
No. 6 – People triangle
I can see more than one implied triangle here – one formed by the left leg of the man wearing blue jeans and the legs of the lady ,and another (inverted) formed with the ladies feet as the apex. I noticed the shapes formed as the people were walking by and focused in to capture an image of just their legs.
B – Exercise 9: Rhythm and pattern
There is rhythm in the tiles here with the patterned relief below them.
knots, curves and faces form the patterns here.
