Lines In Baseball
Even though they might not be visible, lines can always be found within
paintings. The image I chose is the perfect example of this. There are
no drawn out lines, but there are many inside the picture. The 2 men
near the 3rd base bag make a triangle with their body positions. The
lines are diagnals which most commonly show action, which in this case
is true. Also there is a horizon by the bleachers of where the sky meets
the stadium wall. The lines in this painting are NOT actual. They can
be considered implied creating implied shapes in the case of the men
making the triangle. The horizon is an example of direction lines. By
seeing this line you can see that the ground ends and now the sky is
starting.You can also see the edges of the men in this painting. Great painting to analyze because the lines aren't obvious and it gets you thinking.
