In Art class we painted someone who you knew the best about. We had to express there personality, feelings, Identity, culture, emotion,Facial Expression, cloth, pose or what they like to do. I wanted to do someone out of my family so I chose my mom because I knew my mom the best. I was able to express her with not much difficulties. I just had to ask her a few questions and straitly I knew what I wanted to do draw and paint.
The title of my painting is Fujimom.
The progress I have made during this unit was panting the background with the things that my mom likes and not just the colors I like. I have overcome my challenges by trying to figure something out by myself first. If this did not work I asking a friend or the teacher.
I think the weakness for me was to paint the drawing with uniuqness. It is because I did not want the face to look like a actual face of my mom and I wanted to make it look unnique but still express what my mom likes to do.
I think my strength is trying to express my moms personality. It is because I tried to show people what my mom likes to do and her feelings towards it and thats why I drew the heart to show her feelings and the peace mark to show that she becomes peace when she sees thing and dose this kind of things. I used blue for the piano and the peace mark because when she sees the piano she becomes happy and calm and she thinks that blue is a calm colour. I made the background colour colorful because my mom is such a happy and cheerful personality and when I see her she reminds me of a rainbow. I made Mount Fuji red because when my mom sees Mount Fuji she thinks of the colour light red.(I was going to make the red a bit more lighter.)
From this drawing I tried to show my moms personality. I also tried to show what my mom likes to do and how she feels when she dose this kind of things. I was able to all of this things by using colours and objects. I used a range of colours to express my moms personality and the objects to show what she likes to do and how she fells towards this things.
I enjoyed making this painted and I think I could have made it a bit more unique next time but overall I really enjoyed painting and drawing so I had fun.
