"The second practical began with an interest in portraiture and the ways in which a portrait can convey emotion. Frida Kahlo, Masato Tsuchiya, Marion Bolognesi, Daniel O’Sullivan and Robyn Stacey were the biggest inspiration. I gained an interest in the use of symbolism to portray emotion when analysing Kahlo’s ‘Self Portrait with Thorn Necklace’ and ‘The Two Frida’s’ which I found particularly interesting in the way it clearly portrayed two sides of a person. This also inspired me to concentrate on self-portraits in order to make the piece more relevant to myself. Tsuchiya and Bolognesi greatly influenced my use of colour and focus on eyes and poses in my final practical."
