      • In my painting I have geometric shapes
      • I hung my painting on its point

    • What I’ve Learned
      • Mondrian’s paintings are very simple
      • However they take time to plan out and create
      • Mondrian used tape
      • Takes time to make perfect
      Piet Mondrian
    • Most Challenging/Interesting Part
      • I had to figure out the right design
      • I had to know what I was going to paint what
      • I taped places where the black would go but the lines still weren’t perfect
      • I had to try not to get paint on the edge of the canvas
      Piet Mondrian
    • Principal Strength
      • The colors are bright
      • They are simple and clean
      Piet Mondrian
    • Principal Weakness
      • There is a little too much black
