As we all know, color is the voice for the artist 's sentiment. It makes up the appearance of a picture. Color is the decisive factor in depths of the two-dimensional plane of the artwork, making the viewer feel physically and mentally attracted, or the context of things - the phenomenon the author wants to present. Colors have been around for a long time, but there is not a common definition for colors. And perhaps humans are one of the luckiest creatures that can identify colors. Often, the recipient 's eye knows a myriad of colors and colors that always change based on the relationship between light and perspective. In art, color creates a sense of

In some instances the audience can acquire a sense, based on the description whether the characters are self absorbed, considerate, or overly concerned about their appearance. “I ought to be shot for looking like this” she’d tell the mirror in the front hall before going out the door. “I look like I’ve been drug through hell backwards,” she would say on and ordinary day. “Like death warmed over. Like something the cat puked up.” (103). The emergence of the images presented in the novel can help present a better understanding and in some cases, a connection to one of the
For this weeks artist, we were asked to summarise the information provided to us based on the artist, Tracey Moffatt, and research other information to include in the summary. We then had to gather four images of her artworks and write comments on them including, our thoughts, opinions and other general statements about the image.

The first element I look at to describe the painting was the title. Reading the title with the year gave me an idea of what the painting could be about, which in this case would be ambassadors during the Reformation of Europe. After beginning to view this piece of art, the first aspect I notice is located on the foreground of the painting which is a skull tilted to an angle where, if viewed from other perspectives, people could mistake it for another object.
