For art, we had to do a self portrait, but make it into some different than just a normal picture of our self. I chose a picture of me dressed up in my WW II uniform. I decided to use this picture because it shows what i am fascinated by and it also shows strong emotion through the paint and lines in my face. After i chose this picture, i decided to do a oil painting but make it into a street art piece in a dirty alleyway. So i painted up a brick wall and went for my self portrait. I am disappointed in the painting in my self, i really struggled drawing myself and I have realized this is not one of my strong points in art, but i realized i can paint a pretty nice brick wall!! If i could do this piece over again i would choose a different picture of me because maybe the portrait would look more like me than someone else. I really need to do a another self portrait to redeem myself after this one, but i will just move on to my next piece. Overall this piece really helped me with my detail work with oil paints, so that is one positive of this piece. I also think it help me to really take my time more and really capture every detail in the image.
