Elements and Principles Unity is made when you repeat any element throughout a work of art to give the art

In my monochromatic landscape work, I have used the element of art, Color. I used Color to create the principle of design,Unity. Unity is made when you repeat any element throughout a work of art to give the artwork a sense of harmony. Repeating the color orange throughout my artwork makes my painting feel Harmonious.

Personal Response

I chose this landmark because I thought not many people would have chose this,even though others did. I feel like the Hollywood Sign is still relevant because it symbolizes the entertainment industry of today. It deserves to still stand because its one of the great features for LA and represents our great entertainment industry.
