Task 3 Art Ideas picTask 3 Art Ideas Egon Schiele picTask 3 Art Ideas Edmund Dulac pic

This is the slide show I used to present my ideas. I put minimal information on them so then the audience weren’t distracted by all the information so then I could explain it myself however I think that this wasn’t such a good idea. Due to nerves I skipped out on important information such as casting for the pieces and the way I explained the Egon Schiele piece was a but rushed so I think I could of made things easier for the audience if I had included more information. I chose a simple coulor pallet as again I wanted the focus to be on the paintings not on what’s around them.
