One difficulty I find for this project is that I need to find some ideas or symbols that can represent my emotions. Even though this project is very abstract, I still find it difficult to find some images that could represent my emotions. I also need to make sure that the images should not be made up of just lines but also the images that I want to convey through my emotions. I am also very rigid and restrained with myself, because of my thinking on how realistic it can look like, leading to the range of materials I can find to be limited.
Another difficulty that I find would be the techniques that I could use. There are certain techniques such as Jackson pollock’s drip technique and having layer mid painting to make the painting to have a three dimensional effect. Although I have used layers of painting, it would not look as if it has a three dimensional effect and it also looks less like Jackson Pollock’s work of having thick layers of paint and some visible strokes that is used by his dripping technique.
However, one strength that I have realised for myself in this project is that I can be more expressive as the emotions that I have came up with were from my own personal experience.
