The Bill

once there was a boy named jamie he sent a bill to his mum for all the chores he does.He wanted a walky talky but on his bill he couldn’t spell walky talky so he write game.and every chore he does is basicly  $5.

and in the bill at the end he would end up with $50.So his mum sent his mum a lettr back and every chore his mum did for him on her letter it said $0.

Then he got told off by his mum and he sent a letter to his dad and his dad.

Matty Bowen

“Fend Oh Matty Bowen straight across the face of Lachlan Coote.” He is my favourite player.this famous guy was named the best full back. He was NRL’s top try scorer two times.These times were in 2005 and 2007. Matt has played ten games for queensland in 2004, 2005, 2006 and 2007.The name I call him is Matty bowen. Matty is an inspiration to my uncle and I.

 Mathew jeremy bowen was born on 9th of march 1982.Matty Bowen grew up in Cape York a place in an aussie community in Hopevile. He went to Abogowrie college by ingham. At the age of twelve Bowen played leauge as a school boy. He was so good he caught the eye of NRL clubs in Sydney and Brisbane.In 2000 Matty Bowen starred in the Cowboys.

 Matty Bowen made his first grade debut to NRL in 2001 febuary the 17th the cowboys arch enemys the brisbane broncos. In townsville dairy farmers stadium.In 2003 he rep’d Queensland in state of origin.

 here a list of his achivements.2005: Leading tryscorer (21) 2007: Leading tryscorer, top this in REAL NRL 22, 2007: Dally M Fullback of the Year, 2007: Rugby League Professionals Association's Player of the Year, 2007: Cowboys' Player of the Year, 2007: North Queensland Cowboys Player's Player of the Year, 2011: Most matches played for the North Queensland Cowboys with a stunning record of 204. I don’t think any one could top that much records except for benji marshall or billy slater.

 The best try from Bowen for me was when he was about 30 metres from the try line and then suddenly. POP the ball came out of the scrum he dummyed then ran all the way from the scrum and goose stepped and then. TRY.heres a clip of it The second try is the one I like. The best fend from him was in the panthers game with lachlan coote.He smacked his hand in his shoulder and coote went flying back and matty gassed it to the tryline. Then TRY.

Skull Reflection.

I attempted to copy the original painting of Skull by Vincent Van Gogh.  I  used paint brush strokes the same way, though the elements are not quite the same. I think that my colours are good but mine does not look like his that much. The way he used his techniques to make the shading light and dark is pretty good and I think I done well with that to.

The similarities between my painting and Van Gogh’s picture is the background because I faintly showed the detail in the brush strokes. I made the shadowing the same by pressing hard to make the paint go darker and lightly brushed it to make it light.

Another thing I thought was good is the detail of the crack on the skull because it is thick in the places it needs to be, and small in the places it doesn’t.  I made it shaped the way it needs to go as well.

The difference between my working and Van Goghs are the brush strokes, because my ones go in a circular pattern, and his are horizontal. I think I still made mine look like his though. I felt proud of it still.

I think Van Gogh trying to tell us that he is death and  Skull’sl painting.  He felt that time he painted this picture and he thinks life is like the painting to him.

I am not happy with the fact that I used too much black on the outlines and the fact that I made the skull to small because Van Goghs almost takes up the whole paper.

By painting over it and make my skull  larger because he paints things big and bald because if he was alive he would tell me to make it bigger

I feel happy about my painting because it was my second attempt at painting and I enjoyed it.
