This is the finished product. I wanted to represent the telekinesis portion of Fatima's personality with all of the circles. I tried really hard to stay away from neons, and i think i succeeded. Fatima said she likes graphic retro art, so this was my first attempt at that style. I like it!

Ok so we are doing an abstract portrait on someone in the class. My project is on Fatima. She likes graphic, retro art, would be a cheetah, and is an aries. she would like to have telekenesis. i've figured out through the course of this project so far, that sometimes you have to make things that you don't like. I REALLY wanted to put neon colors in this, but they are Fatima's least favorite colors. Anyway, this is it so far!

We're doing a caricature of a teacher. I chose to do mine on Louise Captein, my painting teacher. Currently in her class I am exploring the works and techniques of Van Gogh, so I decided to turn her portrait into a Van Gogh style painting. This is the finished product!
I put a tulip in her hand because Louise is from the Netherlands. Holland is stereotyped with tulips and windmills, and she told me that she lived the stereotypical Dutch life. As a child she used to clean tulip bulbs to send to America, so I thought that would be appropriate. I used a swirly background and tried to incorporate as many colors as I could to copy Van Gogh's style.
