    100 art nouns please

    HELLO' i like to study languages an this guy on youtube had a great idea (cant find the video right now but...) the idea was to learn the 100 most common words used in a field like medical or travel ect... so i was try'n to figure out what they would be for art.
    any help would be greatly appreciated im pretty new to art so i dont know alot of the terminology
    thanks in advance an' even just one or two words would help ahh and preferably nouns an if you can drop any of these words in a defferent language (useing phonetic for languages with symbols) next to thier english version that would ROCK!

    all i can come up w/ right now is

    drawing' painting' brush ' pencil' black' white' blue' green' yellow' purple' brown' orange' value' composition' line' light source' perspective' shadow' highlight' hue' saturation' erase' portrait' refference' environment' anatomy' pose' contrast' lighter' darker' texture' shape' circle' square' contour' shilouette' background ' midground' foreground' hmm.... thanks again

    YALL ARE MY HERO'S

    After i study the nouns i will look into verbs this will help understand felixable general ideas about what another person is talking about in a different language in a specific field 'ART' .most laugauge programs do not have this field and generally teach phrases that are constructed an only work under certain circumstances(programs as these are great introductions). i study alot while drawing an i thought this would be a good way to learn more about art an language at the same time

    THANKS AGAIN ALL YALL RRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRROOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOC CCCCCCCCCCCCCCKKKKKKKKKKKKKKKKKKKKKKKKKKKKKKKKKKKK K!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    They are all nouns, or at least can be used as such, though most are nominalizations.

    "Fuck up" is the largest stretch to use as a noun, but not impossible.

    One thing to look out for is that some of these words have different meanings in different fields of art.

    For example, "key" means a mechanical paste-up in some parts of the country, but in sculpting, it means little indents and matching "pegs" at the edge of a casting mold used for registering the pieces before a pour, and it also refers to little brass or stiff paper guides anchored to a base board for registration in multiple-color print-making. It can also refer to the master art or negative in graphic arts to which all other art (color breaks, etc.) are registered. The little wooden and metal wedges that are used to lock up lead or wooden type or to hold woodblocks in registration are also called keys, as are the wedges used in the corners of stretched canvas to tighten the material.
