This is my reflection about my self portrait for my art unit.
During my art project for my self portrait I had allot of strengths and weaknesses. In our first unit we used a pencil but in the second we used paint. I realized that paint was fun to use but It was a bit harder to use because the point were the paint comes out is big and a pencil is thin so a pencil has more control. Our unit question is “How do our personal experiences shape our identity?”
During this project I had allot of things I achieved and one thing was being able to paint better then last time.The best thing I achieved in this art project is when I made the face and the nose because I was able to make it look more good then I thought it was going to be.
The main thing about drawing a self portrait seems to be shading because you don’t draw lines for the nose you shade to make it 3D. Shading was not that easy but I was able to do it for unit 1. In unit 2 which Is all about paint, you needed to use different colors as shade. For example the darker part of your face will have allot of shading, which means the paint you should be darker for dark areas of the face.
My strength was when I made the picture creative, My weakness was I didn’t use good shading paint.
In this unit I improved to be more prepared for the next unit. And I also learned some tips to paint a self portrait which is obvious.
