my awesome art!

"Choose Your Culture Treat It Four Ways"

We are learning about the elements and techniques of painting.
We are able to share our cultural identities through the arts.
I chose the Japanese icon and decided to focus on a famous Japanese icon named the A-bomb dome,known in japan as the "Genbaku dome". I chose it because it is very special to Japan. 
We then learnt about Andy Warhol who brought the "Pop art" style of art to life. In this style he chose popular icons and painted them using different colour mixes.He said the rules of art were made to be broken so his work was very unique when he started doing this.
I learnt about the colour wheel and the different colours on it
Primary colours- Red , Yellow & Blue
Secondary colours- Orange , Green & Purple colours that are made out of two primary colours.
Analogous colours- Three colours that are side by side on the colour wheel.
Monochromatic- Shades of one colour.
We drew a bold design of our icon using a drawing pencil.
we turned it over and traced it onto cartridge paper four times , once in each quadrant.
I choose 
Complementary- Purple & Yellow
Analogous- Orange , Yellow & Peach
Black & White 
Monochromatic- Red , Pink & Purple
I think my painting is multistructural because it includes form , shape & texture.
