the solid, material, space-occupying bulk that is contained within its surfaces. volume- Volume is the quantity of three-dimensional space enclosed by some closed boundary, closed form- A self-contained or explicitly limited form; having a resolved balance of tensions, open form- design that is not a solid mass but that literally has openings within it, where lines and planes often replace solid volumes or enclosing surfaces and thus the open (negative) space becomes a major component of the work. vertical placement- we perceive objects that are placed lower in the image as closer to us, and objects that are placed higher as being further away. perspective- the art of drawing solid objects on a two-dimensional surface so as to give the right impression of their height, width, depth, and position in relation to each other when viewed from a particular point. linear perspective- works by representing the light that passes from a scene through an imaginary rectangle (realized as the plane of the painting), to the viewer's eye, as if a
viewer were looking through a window and painting what is seen directly onto the windowpane. Renaissance- The Renaissance is a period in European history, covering the span between the 14th and 17th vanishing point- It says that the image in a picture plane π of a line L in space, not parallel to the picture horizon line- runs across the paper or canvas to represent the viewer’s eye level, or delineate where the sky meets the ground.
