Portrait as still life
I chose items that I use a lot and felt like they represented me. I have an adidas backpack, an eyeshadow palette, a mug, and a tub of ice cream. I chose acrylic because i thought it would be easier to make it look realistic with acrylic. I think the proportions and colors were successful but next time i would make it look more 3D.
The idea of place
I love the beach and sunsets so i decided to paint a picture with both of them in it. I think the blending of the colors was very successful but next time I would fix the reflection of the sky on the water so it looks more like a reflection and not the sky. I picked watercolor for this because I thought it would be easier to blend the colors of the sky and water and it would look more seamless than if i did it in acrylic.
