Concentration piece 10

My painting is of a street scene in Paris. There are many smart cars in Paris, so I decided to make one the focal point of my painting. The medium used to create this work is oil paint. I used repetition in shapes and vertical and horizontal lines in order to create visual interest and a sense of stability. I simplified the buildings in the background and made them less important, focusing on the car in the front. I used many cool colors in the painting in order to give viewers a calm feeling. I used bolder, more intense colors in the smart car to make the center of interest more exciting. I used a palette knife to apply the paint to the canvas, giving the painting texture and more excitement.
