I was drawn to this piece by the simplicity of it. To me, it told a story, and one that I wanted to paint. The chair is old and rusty, and looks like it has weathered many storms. The wood in the railings looks as if it has seen better days. The composition of this piece was so simple, but it wasn’t boring. The color scheme was appropriate- red and green. The green in the trees contrasted with the reds and purples in the chair, and the wood has a reddish tint to it. The lights and darks filtering in through the trees creates many layers in the woods, generating a sense of depth.

This picture I found on the Internet, although I had just visited The Wizarding World of Harry Potter, and this was a corner that I had wanted to do. Unfortunately when I was there, there were too many people to take a decent picture of this corner. I was particularly attracted to this corner because of the bright colors and the layout of the stairs. All the different colored candy that was in jars, boxes, and other containers helped fuel my excitement to paint this picture. All the different colored candy that was in jars, boxes, and other containers helped fuel my excitement to paint this picture. The composition of the candy containers and the stairs make the picture interesting, and the jars of different colored candy makes the picture fun and exciting.

This picture is the seventh edition in my concentration. I chose this picture because the values in the colors and the composition. The perspective of the room and the one beyond really intrigued me, and I wanted to create a feeling of emptiness and mystery. The repetition of lines creates a feeling of peace and calm. I liked the light coming in from the window, and how it affected the colors on the objects in the rooms. The shades of the colors help make the picture interesting, and the repetition of shapes creates rhythm within the two rooms in the painting.
