Documented evidence

1) 22 April, Friday:
 I started to sketch on the A3 paper, using some drawing samples as the source. For the ideas, I am going to draw the "perfect figure" of a beautiful woman who's staring at herself in the mirror, still looking unsatisfied for her looks, no matter how beautiful she is. While the reflection of the mirror, reflects the figure of the woman's desire to fix her beauty through cosmetic surgery. An exaggeration of beauty id being reflected in the mirror (according to "hollywood's beauty perception"); oversized lips, oversized eyes, oversized boobs, way too long eyelashes. There are some surgery's tools to indicate that the reflection in the mirror, is doing cosmetic surgery (operation scissor, infuse). The exaggeration has a concealed message to tell the audience, that cosmetic surgery is not the solution to fix beauty, and does not always fix anything, that it might turned out into a bad addiction. The "perfect figure" of the beautiful woman symbolizes a low self esteem, not grateful for her looks, which is indicated by her unsatisfied expression. I use acrylic paints as the media, since the acrylic is drier and easier to use, which would be the most suitable in painting the rough & dry style. The painting is painted in such a dark background and rough style, to leave an impression of the woman's depression and mystery. The woman's body language and expression shows her unsatisfied desire of her looks, and searching for the "perfect beauty" through cosmetic surgery, as it is shown in the mirror. The woman is drawn in a naked figure, to show her beauty, leaving a strong sophisticated impression.\

2) 24 April, Sunday:
After finishing the sketch on A3 paper, I started to sketch on the canvas using pencil. For the canvas' size, I use 150 cm X 100 cm size, so that painting's result would look more appealing and attract audience's attention. By using a huge canvas size, I can express my artwork creativity more freely on it, and painting in more details.

3) First of all, I started to block the painting using acrylic paints, and apply base colors. So that it would be easier for me to start the painting and mixing colors/paints.
