My subject for the final art painting is Freya Moss. In the painting I expressed things that she liked. I expressed it by clothing and objects. I put the objects she liked in the air, and I painted the shirt she always wore. The art that inspired me was manga. Before I moved to Japan, the only thing I knew about the place was that it had Manga. So I wanted to make my painting a manga drawing.
My manga painting is symbolic to me of a pretty friendship with Freya. I used painterly brushstrokes to represent our bumpy friendship, since we had a lot of ups and downs. I didn’t want to show smooth strokes for this reason. I used all of the primary colours, most of the secondary colours, and most of the tertiary colours. I feel this painting didn’t look like her, but it seemed liked her. I could’ve done better on the hair, because I need to mix colours to get her hair colour.
Instead of objects and clothing, I could change the pose, and direction of gaze. I could pose her serving a volleyball, and she would be looking at the volleyball. This represents her because she really liked volleyball, and she was a very important member in the team.
My painting is more important to the audience because if she does not like the painting, I would feel that I haven’t reached my goal.
