How I used color...

The Element of Art Color was achieved in my painting. I achieved this by using the same color throughout the painting. But instead of it just being all red and looking boring I used different tints and shades of red throughout the painting. So my painting is boring but it isn't that bad...no it's still pretty friggin' boring. :(

History and Culture...

The Space Needle is located in Seattle Washington. It was created to be entered into the 1962 World's Fair. It brought in over 2.3 million people. While tens of thousands of people used it's elevators daily. It's had some minor upgrades since it's debut but that's "understandable." Get it? Understandable? Because the upgrades were made to keep it from standing? HA!!!!

Art and Design...

The Space Needle has a futuristic art style. The Needle is 605'. In order of height it's as follows: Eiffel Tower at 1,063 feet, Space Needle at 605 feet, and Washington Monument at 555 feet. The design of the Space Needle is futuristic, it's not as futuristic now as it was back then though. Because back in 1962 when it was made it looked like something out of the 2020's. But now that we have all of this technology and everything it isn't as cool now. But is is still AMAZING!!!

Personal Response...

I chose to use the Space Needle in my artwork and research it because firstly it looks incredible, and secondly it is featured in one of my favorite video games Infamous: Second Son. I really liked that game and I also loved how they featured the Space Needle. In the game you can go to the top of the Space Needle which is AWESOME! And going to the top of the Needle in the game made it even cooler for me.

Principles and Elements

The element of art that I used in my work is color. I organized this to achieve the principle of design, Unity. Unity is when you create a harmonious feeling by repeating an element throughout a work of art. I created this because I used a monochromatic color scheme in my artwork. I repeated the same color, but they had darker and lighter values.
