vanityfaire challenged me to do another if she did...so here is the start...just the value sketch for now...will be OP and a decent size for once!
Alright!!!! Great beginnings, you are capturing yourself Yeah, You will never guess where I am posting from. I am sitting in the Lobby of Cornish School of the Arts, My daughter is auditioning for college entrance with her Cello. I so wanted to go here for my Art Degree. There programs are awesome. So i will live through my daughter on this one. I am sooooo excited to even just be sitting here. The energy blows you away. :clap:

You're coming along on this series very well. What size are they? I like the use of complements...and the warm surrounding the blue makes me think that even when you are 'blue' there is warmth and support around you.
It appears that you are very focused on the project. I want to hear more about what you are thinking while doing these portraits. It really is a man for all seasons. :D

Your doing a great job in breaking outside of the box. Good choice in study of color, you are getting so much depth in you portrait. Love the glasses. Maybe rose colored eh LOL! ;)

Hi!

I still haven't managed to shrink my first effort at this to <500 K, I've forgotten too much of my photoshop...But after a half done sketch of a landscape, I decided to try my hand at a real self-portrait yesterday, and just got it up on the progress page. Unfortunately, it's fullsize!!!!! my apologies to anyone who pulls it up and wasn't planning to get close and personal with my nose. :p

Obviously, I need to find my Photoshop books, which aren't unpacked yet.

The orange glow on my jaw bone is from my yellow sweatshirt, which I will add if I get up the courage--the bug-eyed look is probably because I was so startled at suddenly seeing my face emerge from the page, and did the eyes last. Also, I have yellow(sun-blocker) coke-bottle lenses due to CFS-caused photophobia.

i forgot to fill in the technical details when I uploaded this: about 9x12 inches,Ma Tients gray paper from a pad, mostly Unison pastels with some cheap hard stuff from somewhere and my mother's leftovers from 35 years ago, 1-1/2 hours in changing light--the front window is the only place with reasonable light or any room, and it kept going from almost sunny to pouring rain!

To all of you who have previously uploaded your portraits, I am incredibly impressed with the quality of work here!!! I almost didn't even try. CJ, your stay-at home Mom stuff is incredible, Stoy, what a range of approach! And Dyin, I know exactly what you meant with the 2 Sues (thanks for the note!). I can't begin to comment on all the others, but in all of them, what wonderful work

Hey, this is a great startup sketch! I also did a first try on my 2 faces...we're usually super critical of our own faces and tend to exaggerate the things we notice most about ourselves. I think you have a good strong contrast going here. I think you're off to a great start...can't wait to see what you come up with for a final!

Oh....talk about self discovery!!! I just love this...and think it quite fun that you got it to load up so big! I agree with your partner...and there's no reason you can't do both pastels and painting with other mediums....I'm pretty excited that you have two other sketches to work with too lol! Honestly, I just love your expression...so eager to see what comes next! I can tell this was a lot of fun for you. Nice colors for the skin and love the spikey hair!

This project will run for another month. This will give Sue your host, a chance to recover from her lazy relaxing week away and answer all the posts, and maybe she will complete her WIP! :p :evil: :D
For folks that have signed up and not submitted anything, you now have lots of time to do so, so get moving!
I'll also have a chance to browse and see all the innovative and wonderful art here.

I find working from a mirror very difficult and I think this looks great! You look very thoughtful and not at all boring. Rather engaging as you are returning our glances. You have a very interesting style as well. I look forward to more!

Charcoal gives a rich effect. Must try more works in this medium.

Working from the mirror is difficult...I kept changing my head position to look in mirror and back to easel. I think I may do a few more studies. My plan is to do a final portrait using memory/imagination, i.e., wing-it without mirror.

It's very impressive seeing this life-size on the screen - pity we cannot see more like this 'cos it's good to see the techniques used. Don't know what your paintings are like yet but please don't give up the pastels!!

This is great!!! I love the skin tone and the spikey hair. Jr high huh? Is'nt it funny how we keep things locked up for so long. Good for you for rediscovering your wonderful talent. Keep growing in your art. I just came back to it last year. I feel so much better about who I am. It is important to keep your art in front of you. I encourage you to keep going and it will blossom for you. -vf

Hello,

I always like to be challenged to do something I wouldn"t do by my self. So this project I do between my other paintings. My thought is that each person has is own emotion, but you also can have all emotions in one person.
I made the background each time in another color because its my emotion while perhaps my envirement has another emotion. It doesn't has to be the same emotion. I also recognize in each color different emotions. Red in anger or red because of love and so on. So I make an whole trip in these pictures.

Greetings Harm

Not really sure, think by extending this there won't be a new one til next month...but you know...you could expand on this self expression thing by painting a different aspect than just a portrait to describe yourself....there...chew on that instead of those pastels a bit lol!

VanityFaire: We had to extend the Self Portrait Project another month because someone backed out on their March Project - there are lots of other Projects you can work on that are still open - two in fact that I hosted - Architecture landscape and When White Isn't White - you can find those in the Project database OR try another Forums Projects that accept any medium.

Moi ... backtrack! Nah, just saying like it is . . . we have had so many Projects dropped over the last few months, that it has become a problem and through this post maybe we can bring that to the attention of the members of this Forum. Sue's Project has been a joy for the many participants and it was through her generosity that she agreed to extend it - otherwise, we would have had no Project for this month (is this backtracking enough Sue :evil: ).

good thing you're not a man or I'd be waiting for the flower delivery!!! teehee It's a shame, because it's really fun hosting these projects...and really easy too. I've seen some great stuff on here and it's just tickled me pink.

Yes, we are looking for people for future Project - it is best to get in touch with one of the Guides or the Mods before jumping into a Project - they can help with an idea, give suggestions and ultimately will edit and approve the Project for publication. So please, PM a Guide or Mod first if you are interested.

SCHREEEECH!!!! This is soooooo cool!! Nice, bold loose and painterly too. I know you were going for all that when you decided to go larger with this one. You have great skintones and I like the neutral background a lot. Though it's not so neutral, really...lovely carry over of the skin tones. The shirt was a great touch and great shadows on the skin....this was a big step for you, and you really did show that you like your body...which a lot of us have a hard time doing. Really, I see a big leap forward on this....you should be really happy with it!!! Clappies for you! :clap: :clap: :clap:

I'm having a ball, this WC community is great, so much talent, encouragement, support and growth. I love playing with pastels, but I had no idea what an artist can do with them before seeing WC, I'm constantly amazed.

I wasn't aware that you could join forums, so now I've joined.

The skin tone was me experimenting, making mistakes, correcting, recorrecting.

Hello,

I finally finished my project. For me this was my first trial for selfportret and a great experience to not copie a Photo with the colors you use to use.
Its not the most great drawings I mae. But it was a great adventure.
Thanks for given me the change to experience it. I wouldn't have done this by my self.
I think and experienced that colors gives you an emotion, but everybody has its own emotion with the same colors. And all emotions together makes you a person.

Harm, this has been a most interesting series of how you see youself and your emotions and I like the final version very much: it's very bold, as were the others, and the eyes appear to be gazing into the future. The forms are quite strong and the use of colour is dramatic and expressive.
I thought your yellow version looked quite like a Roman Emperor's medallion or seal - (like Nero perhaps!) :p but I'm pleased the final one is much stronger and stable! :D :D

Harm, this is so great. It really brings your audience to know you so much better. I love that you risked taking your Wet Canvas family with you as you explored your inner self. I can tell that you have many sides, funny, serious, loving and reaching out to be loved. Your portraits tell it all. I can't wait to see other things that you will try.

Ahhh, I think that several of us became moody doing this project, even though we are painting what we see, it is definately tempered by our underlying feelings and we tend to exaggerate certain things. I think it's a nice strong piece though...you weren't feeling colorful and it probably would have been a disaster if you had pushed it that way. I think self-portraits are supremely interesting...there is always more there than meets the eye. I would say you are an intense person, a touch critical of yourself and somewhat frustrated, as you indicated. This from just looking at it...as to the execution...well, I really like it. The shadow effect is very cool and i like how the shirt is unfinished. The fact you did it so quickly shows...it has energy and is not overworked. I love the way you did the eyes best...very effective!
Thanks for joining the project and thanks for posting...i don't get notices when something is added to the project itself and would have hated to miss this great piece!

lozz
03-29-2004, 06:55 PM
Thanks Dyin! It was sort of fun to do even though I got all moody. I'm going to do some more when this dark cloud has gone! ;)

Quite accurate with the description of me.... I can feel quite intense when painting, I know it sounds cliché, but its like wrestling with some sort of demon sometimes, the demon being the painting, the wrestling being me trying to control the outcome... I guess this is down to my inexperience with the media and still developing draughtsmanship...

Self critical! You bet! 'Better to pull ones self down than have someone do it for you!' that's me! :D

The portrait has come out here a little crunched than it looks in real life. I guess my camera is going on the blink now! You know the old joke about breaking the camera!!! :evil: :D :p Only I could do it to myself!

Dyin
03-29-2004, 08:35 PM
well, I think self portraits are the hardest thing to do as portrait artists. We're rarely satisfied with our work to begin with...always wrestling, so to speak, and if we found ourselves so fascinating we'd have done our ownselves long ago lol! But i think it's good...know yourself and all that. it's a tad addictive and I do think you will do yourself again. And hope you'll share with us on the forum. Mostly this thread was to encourage people to look past the surface into emotions. They're not always pleasant emotions but there's something to learn there, so as to tie it into our work. btw....is it possible that you forgot to constrain proportions when you sized this for upload??? That'll stretch and scrunch too!

Hey! Thanks for the kind comments you both!

The scary thing is, I was sitting in my dinning room when I did it - its painted a 'butter milk' colour and its was broad daylight!

I wanted to do a nice happy picture, but hey, who's going to sit grinning at the mirror for 40 minutes?! ;)

Had to check out the flash version...which one is closer to real life? Try taking the pastel outside and in some light shade to take a photo...usually get the best true results that way.

Dyin,
many thanks for your comments.

Portrait in bright colours. I think the dog is on my head because I love him AND also at the moment...he thinks he is the boss of me.

The statue is some kind of god/goddess I think. Possibly Buddha. I think maybe referring to an interest in religious studies (via social anthropology).

I must add I look nothing like this. Its an internal 'me'. Maybe internal 'me's' are more fun to paint. You don't know what you'll come up with!!

Green hair portrait. Is green hair un-sober?? Great fun.

I think my finals may be one realistic (in the mirror pose) and one fantasy (who knows what that'll be??)

Going to look at some others now.

I like this final portrait very much. I didn't READ it as your emotional hiding or storing of emotional issues inside the skull. I, actually, before I read your reasons behind it, thought the animal skull was the other side of you...I thought it looked like an aggressive wolf and the outer shell of you!! The strong part of you.

Kind of the animal spirit of you. Maybe your protector or guide. Maybe someone else made that comment earlier. I haven't been all the way through this thread from the beginning to end.

Very powerful portrait.

Dyin, Thanks for the encouragement - yes, this is one of my first pastel portraits, except for one of my daughter last Spring which I posted on another project. I've been practicing pencil drawing a lot lately, and I think I'm making some progress, but when I see some of the work on this site I see how far I have to go. I'll try to get a better picture tomorrow. I found it sort of terrifying to do a self-portrait. I'm caught between flattering myself and making myself look 90 years old. As I add and subtract detail I waft between these two poles. I've been adding some detail tonight but I think I need a break from it for awhile. Thanks again for the kind words.

Dyin

June...lol...haven't you yet realized your dog IS the boss of you??? :p I think internal self portraits are more realistic than external in a way...because we can't really control what our features might portray to someone. Internal is way more fun too. Thank you for your kind words on my entry...it's a much better way to read this and I think I shall think of it that way from now on...back off ye beasts or T-Rex will chomp ya lol!!! I feel stronger already! :D Looking forward to your final entries!

Amboise...then I'm very impressed..only a second try! Trust me...my first efforts at the very piece I did here had my husband horrified at how old I'd made myself look. Sometimes we're a bit hard on ourselves when we shouldn't be. I don't think you came across old at all. We all have a long way to go with our work, we're just all in different stages of learning. This is a great place to get help and you should post this in a regular thread on pastel forum too...let people know you want a critique...you can tell them how much you can handle lol...and ask for suggestions for further improvement.

Photos always distort some...Skin is not perfectly blended tones in RL either...I don't see this as blotchy myself. I'd call it done...I love the arched eyebrow btw...and that's the loveliest color of red hair. You really do have a feel for portrait work, so I hope you'll continue to do them...you could even try a different version of yourself for practice.

Ooooh, If I was you I'd run straight to the beauty parlor and do your hair! This is so cool looking! I love the play of warms and cools, the great directional strokes too! And you have the greatest expression there...hopeful and self amused at the same time.

A late-entry, but not having done portraiture before, I've been thinking & practicing on this for a while. The background notations are actual workings from my work notebook, mainly used for the design of digital-art screensavers, which involve a lot of maths, as well as design.

The slightly anxious expression represents the dichotomy between my mathematical background & work with my current attempts to express emotions through painting.

A very expressive portrait. I like the idea of the maths background being your actual background in the portrait.

I have a scientific background also, psychology, and it was difficult to get rid of the detached scientific world view and switch to the warmer emotional roller-coaster of art and creativity. Well worth the switch. I guess as you are doing it too...you agree!!

Hope to see more of your work.

Wow...I love hearing and seeing the thought process here...a real left brain/right brain approach. Years ago I saw a comedy skit on a late night show with the Muppets. Kermit was trying to explain how to create beautiful thoughts and he'd think a bit and lovely flowers and shapes would flow out of his mind and the other muppet would scrunch his face and strain and symbols much like yours would squeeze out of his head in a jumble...this is so like that!
I think the whole point is you need to relax and let it flow. There's a lot of strength in your strokes and perhaps on your next portrait attempt you could try to use some cooler colors for the areas that recede and maybe try to break the pieces and use the side rather than the edge so you'll be forced to relax and loosen up.
