I wanted to incorporate dark shadows and a slight version of abstract art. I accomplished that by just looking at the shape of the shadow instead of the whole picture itself. My painting is about Interesting markings and dramatic shadows. The most difficult challenge in this painting were the fingers. With the help of my teacher I figured out the size view placement of the fingers. My painting really works with the lips and the different values of the lips. I have learned the ways of size view placement. My mentor is Edvard Munch. Much uses his feeling to bring out the dramatic ways of his paintings. I liked Barwick's because she used a lot of value. I am happy about the contrast in my painting.
