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.
In our first art unit we drew our self portrait. Our unit question was “How does observing help us learn”? I got the chance to draw my first self portrait and my first self portrait was not as good as my second. In my first drawing my nose was not my nose and my eyes were not my eyes and I rarely used shading. My second was a lot better. It had shading and It had 3d on the nose and the eyes and the lips were better and had more value. My weakness was making it look like me because my self portrait looked like somebody else. My strength was adding value and making it have a 3D style because my second one had a large amount of improvement if you look back at my old self portrait.
