View Full Version : Self Portrait and first painting of a person

03-09-2015, 09:09 PM
This 9 x 12 painting is my first attempt at painting a person. I decided to make it a self portrait because it just seemed to make sense. I'm happy with it given that I'm still new to this whole world of painting but hope to one day make another better attempt

Amazing! It's hard to believe that this is your first portrait. Very impressive.

Not too bad indeed for a first. You have good skin tones too, which is hard to mix (well, I find them hard to mix)

Oh yes....keep going on the people/portraits.
Lots of potential and nice job.

That is a really good painting, especially for a first one. I hope I can do that someday.

I'm sure you can now. I never thought I could and certainly wished it had turned out better but it did turn out and is acceptable

Very nice portrait never mind that it's a self portrait AND your first people portrait! You have a lot of talent that will take you far!!
