Concentration piece 11
I used the medium of oil paint to create this painting. The painting is of a street scene outside a cafe in Paris. I found this picture online, but changed it to make it my own. I used a palette knife to apply the paint on the canvas. This painting has an impressionistic quality. I used low intensity colors in the backgrounds in order to make the foreground seem more important. Because the plants on the right side have high intensity, I added green to the left side of the painting to create balance. The different values and intensity of colors of the buildings give the painting depth.
