Ftrst self portrait

Hello to all! This is my first attempt at doing a self portrait. I still have more to work to do on the clothing and neck. I struggled with the idea of wearing my eyepatch, but I decided not to. I figure I donít need a reminder! Thanks for looking. All comments and constructive criticism are welcome. 😊

I forgot to add, this piece is on pastelboard, using Polychromos, soho, Luminance, Soho, and Pablo colored pencils.

Excellent work. The colours and tones are very good. You certainly have a talent for coloured pencil portraiture.

Well done! Glad you left the eye patch off. Are you going for surgery to correct your double vision or do you just have to to live with it?

Thank you all so much for your encouraging comments! I love posting here... itís such a positive group!

Vena, I have a Neuro muscular disease that, although well controlled, has left me with weak eye muscles. So, my eyes cross. I also just started wearing special contact lenses to help smooth the cornea. I have double vision in my left eye from having an irregular cornea. Contact lenses can sometimes help with diplopia caused by the Neuro-muscular disease, but if not, the doctorís are prepared; theyíll add prisms to my glasses! 😊

Nice to meet you Tammy!!!

I know it is not good to compare, but your attitude and work are in my mind all the time, pushing me. So inspiring...

A million thanks for sharing your beautiful portrait.

Re: Ftrst self portrait

Hello have not been on here for a while. Your work is beautiful... Just wondering if you will frame it without glass as it is on pastel board.?

Wow. Great textures and likeness. Glasses are particularly hard and you've got that sense the glass is there, the distortion's perfect. Love the skin tones and soft-edged modeling on your face. Great color.

Re: Ftrst self portrait

I fixed a couple of things. Someone was very kind and pointed out a couple of trouble spots. Iím so glad Iím in such a nurturing environment!
Thank you all for being so wonderful and encouraging!

Robert, thank you for always being such positive and generous in your comments.

Raquel, I canít wait to see some of your things once you get started again!

Ladypainter, Iíve read that colored pencil should be put behind glass , so Iíll mat and frame using glass. Pastelboard is Masonite with a sanded ground, so I donít think it will be hard to frame.

Thanks to all! ❤️❤️❤️
