Part III –Circle of Friends and Art Vocabulary
Sandy Delehanty, a wonderful watercolor artist in the Sacramento Area taught me the elements of design. This knowledge has been invaluable when designing jewelry. Understanding the elements of design was, for me, an evolutionary step as an artist. Whenever designing a layout for a painting or a beaded embroidery piece, the elements of design come into play. Having an understanding of these concepts enables an artist to manipulate a design in a way that results in an artifact that people can understand and connect with because it “feels’ right when looking at it.
