Jessica Payne, Tracy Clark, Damion Brown, Macy Bell
The 5 rings of color symbolizes the Olympics
Red and Red Heart, symbolic for Valentines Day.
People dressed in black, symbolic for a funeral.
The dark colors used gives a feeling of sadness or depression, making this a psychological piece of work
The colors red, blue, orange, and yellow are used together to show different emotions. Blue is showing calmness, Red is showing passion, Orange is showing optimism, and Yellow is showing cheerfulness.
The use of the colors green, orange, and blue in this art depicts dependability and calmness but the black in the art on the face area depicts sadness disappointment as if the individual is a failure.
