I spent about 3-4 days on this art project and it was hard to find inspiration. So, I took suggestions from my art teacher Miss Eipp and she deserves a little bit of credit because she took time out of her day to teach me how to paint.
The first step I took was I started to mix colors and then I started to add the background to my painting. With a lot of mixed colors I set it to dry and the next day, I started to add layers. After that I added splatters of all sorts of colors and at the end I mixed a bunch of colors until I found the one I wanted and made one big stripe.
*I had a lot of success with splattering because it was easy.
*I learned how to paint abstract really well during the process because of all the help I got from my classmates and teacher.

This painting represents me because of all the colors because 1 second I can be happy the next mad. I titled this work, “British Flag,” because of all the stripes and colors I added, it reminded me of the flag. Here is my progress:
