I chose the birth of Venus as this weeks project. By Sandro Botticello I like how the painting depicts Venus as a woman being born from the sea and out of a sea shell. I think the other two women in the painting depict both her godly and human side. I think it is very interesting how the real woman is trying to cover her up and Angels are blowing her clothes off I think it is very beautiful.
I chose to also do Great Wave off Kanagawa to makeup for a poor painting last week this is a woodblock print made by a Japanese artist Hokusai. I like it because I believe the art has a lot of movement the shape of the water makes your eye follow it as if it is actually moving
