In my honors art class this year at Chillicothe High School, I have done some work that has turned out quite well. Along with regular art assignments, I have an on going collection of concentration pieces that will all go together at the end of the year. It has been a busy year and I have really enjoyed working in my class.
My main concentration has been hands. I chose to use hands as my focal point because i feel like you can do a lot of different things with such a simple body part. My first piece of the year using hands was the painting of hands making a heart. In my art class last year, I did a similar picture but with oil pastels. This year I used acrylic paint and canvas.
I try to send a message with my hand concentration pieces. My next concentration piece I made was a hand making a peace sign. I decided to use a different color scheme when I painted this because I wanted to portray a darker side to peace. Instead of loud vibrant colors, I used black, gray, and white acrylic paint for the hand, and a warm red and cool blue for the back round for a Tye dye affect.
