Using Art as a Writing Prompt Prof. Myrna Monllor Jimnez Prof. Helen Domenech Prof. Myrna Monllor Jimnez Prof. Helen Domenech Slide 2 My Cat by Barbara Esbensen Slide 3 My cat is asleep-white pawsStay in your holes mice! folded under his chinMy cat sees you He is a soft greyin his dreams smudge on the round rugand has left his motor running. Dozing in the sun He is a warm round stone with a fur collar My cat is taking a nap Not a whisker Trembles Not a hair Moves His breath goes softly in and out Slide 4 Definition A description is your vivid observation in words of someone or something that you have seen and want to convey to your reader. When you write descriptions your objective should be to create a lively picture in your reader's mind. Johannes Vermeer Girl with a Pearl Earring Slide 5 The painting was like none of his others. It was just of me, of my head and shoulders, with no tables or curtains, no windows or powder-brushes to soften and distract. He had painted me with my eyes wide, the light falling across my face but the left side of me left in shadow. I was wearing blue and yellow and brown. The cloth wound round my head made me look not like myself, but like Griet from another town, even from another country altogether. The background was black, making me appear very much alone, although I was clearly looking at someone. I seemed to be waiting for something I did not think would ever happen.
