Truly great artwork achieves excellence in four areas: the arrangement of the pictorial elements, the expressive content or message, the application of the medium, and a personal creative approach that explores new avenues of visual expression. In this guide, author L. Rogers Ramirez presents an introduction to the elements and principles of two-dimensional design through the study of representational and abstract artwork. Design Principles and Methods for Composing Artwork provides a clear, detailed guide to the elements that create good and bad design.
