Miranda The Tempest


Miranda is one of the principal characters of William Shakespeare’s The Tempest. Miranda is the daughter of Prospero, one of the main characters of William Shakespeare’s The Tempest. She was banished to the Island along with her father at the age of three, and in the subsequent twelve years has lived with her father and their slave, Caliban, as her only company. She is openly compassionate and unaware of the evils of the world that surrounds her, learning of her father’s fate only as the play begins.
The painting is very emotion and has a deep feeling of emotion from the first sight of it. The painting itself is painted with dark colors; even the shade of yellow used on the edges of the waves is dark, not bright. Miranda herself looks very innocents and young. Her had is positioned on her heart as if she is thinking of a loved one or something has happened to a loved one. The waves look as if it’s very windy and so does her hair, because it’s flowing. Her dress is a deep blue and is painted very carefully and vividly, as you can see each crease and flow of the dress clearly. The most vibrant color in the painting is her reddish hair. The picture is level as in all almost at the same height, even the farthest mountain looks about the height of the ship. And the ship is not that far off from the length of the stone she is sitting on. It can be inferred that she is brave because while the ship is crashing in front of her and you can see a piece of the ship infront of her to the left, she doesn’t seem scared or worried, yet she seems sympathetic.
