Elements and Principles

In my monochromatic landscape of the Twin Towers, I used the element of color. I organized color to create Unity. Unity is made when you repeat any element throughout a work of art to give the artwork a sense of harmony. Repeating blue throughout my artwork makes my painting feel harmonious.

They were built at a time when New York's future seemed uncertain, the towers restored confidence and helped stop Manhattan from becoming a bad neighborhood. They were burnt down in 2001 by Al Quaeda. They hit both towers with hijacked airplanes and committed a suicide terrorist attack.
