abstract painting

the messy half and the beat half of the swirls show how one person can often look one way but really feel another way. it shows how the same person can appear like they feel a certain way but truly feel the complete opposite.

Andy Warhol - Marilyn Monroe

Dear journal,
I've just received the tragic news of  Marilyn Monroe's death. Being such a beautifully talented actress, I feel it necessary to honor her legacy by painting he portrait. Marilyn's death has affected me very deeply, since she is such an adored figure in the public's eye. I feel that creating this artwork of her will help me cope with her death and move on from my current sorrow state of mind. I will be using the method of silk screening to make several different images. Each image will consist of different colors, representing the different masks she always wore to hide her true self. I believe that an age of pop art is at hand, and this work of Marilyn will catch the public's eye well. My kind of artwork seems to have a certain affect on its viewers, some good and some bad. Never the less, it still catches their interest and causes them to become curious about the origin of the art. Some people wonder why I choose to draw commercial items, such as soup cans. My simple answer; because they stand as a border between the rich and poor.

I would like to name this work of art 5sos. I created this work of art by first drawing the shapes that I saw in pencil. Then, I traced over my marks in pen. Lastly I filled in some shading with a black sharpie. When I look at my pre-assessment and my final drawing next to each other, I think that I have improved a lot. my pre-assessment only has a few pencil markings, which isn't a lot. My final drawing has shading and the whole figures. A lot more work was completed in my final drawing compared to my pre-assessment. My favorite part is the shading next to the person on the far right. I also like how the person on the far left turned out, even though the drawing overall is not completely finished. If I could change something about it, it would be that I would actually finish the drawing. I would spend more time on the mouths and the shading. This would make the drawing look better, if they had mouths. While making it I was surprised that the figures turned out very proportional. I had to re-start the two people on the right since they were too big, but it turned out looking good. something I want to share about this artwork is that it is of one of my favorite bands, which I will be meeting the members of in the Summer of 2016.Displaying image.jpeg
