Cello & Me
Oil Paint on Canvas
42 x 29.7 cm

This artwork is a Georgette Chen-inspired self-portrait, depicting my growing interest in playing the cello in Chinese Orchestra, which is my CCA. It was done using oil paint, a medium that I have never tried before, so I got to explore and broaden my experience of different art mediums through the making of this painting. I was partly inspired by the colour palettes and brush strokes of some of Chen's paintings and used a majority of reddish tones for myself and my cello—since the colour red represents passion—to further emphasise my passion for playing the cello.
