I wasn’t able to get a picture of my self portrait, but I did finish it.
I selected this photo to use because I thought that I looked best in this photo, better than the others.I think that the most important aspect of my painting was the different shades. Although this was the hardest part for me, I think that it really brings out the painting and makes it look really cool. I think that this painting represents me because first of all, it is painted in purple, which is my favorite color. But it also has many great memories that I shared with many different people. For example, I have a picture from peak, I have one from my soccer team, I have a couple from summer camp, I have a couple from cotillion, I have a couple with my family and on vacation and many many more that show many people who have made a difference in my life. These pictures also show different sides of me. For example: the soccer picture shows my sporty side. The cotillion pictures show my feminine side. The pictures from summer camp show my playful side. I am very proud of the actual drawing itself because I think that it ended up looking a lot like me. The part that I found most challenging was mixing the shades properly. This is because I kept on making it either to dark or too light, and the paint always changed a little bit on the canvas after it dried. Also, I kept having to stop half way through one shade and then I would end up having to repaint the whole shade.
