There are seven finite elements in art that help define all genres including contemporary water artists. Liz Covington has a broad range of styles that exemplify those elements among her extensive catalog of work.

Linework
The linework in Liz Covington’s work ranges from the straight and narrow to the light and dreamy through her brushwork techniques. A good example of this is her prize-winning piece, “Abstract Man.”

Color
While watercolor gets thought of as traditionally light, delicate colors, Liz’s work extends the range from both light to bold, bright colors.

Shape
As part of the visual composition, the shapes in an artwork can draw the eye of the viewer and hold it with the use of line and color.

Form
Particularly in her portraits, Liz creates more than a 2D image and gives depth and expanse through her use of colors and value.

Value
An integral part of the color, value brings the lightness and darkness. Liz has experimented with using limited colors in her artwork on some pieces and using only values on those colors for the light and dark elements in the piece.

Spatial Positioning
This element is how the lines, shapes, colors, forms, and values-all work together within an artwork. Space can get presented as positive (with something within it) or negative (an open area).
