Petra:
I missed yours, terribly sorry for that. It is an interesting, but cool artistic idea. I looked at your site. It's nicely done.

Re: Show us your self portrait!

jhercica: I like both your portraits. The impressionistic one looks "electric" and the other one is also very well done. You look so serious!

present: This is a very nice drawing. I like the pose. Will look forward to seeing a new version.

Petra: Your work is unique. Had not heard of making scrolls out of silk paintings, but really like the concept. I like your work. I did a half face half skull muli-media painting once, but it was designed to show the passing of time from life to death, and not the inner person that one does not see on a superficial level. Like your idea.

Re: Show us your self portrait!

Sketched this afternoon. Pastels on Colorfix.

I drew myself with a Kirk Douglas chin. In fact I have a zit there and it makes it look like a cleft. Didn't shave this morning either.

Hmmm ... don't see anything wrong with the old chin ... ::grin:: you don't have to include zits you know! Like the colors. Very nice portrait!

Re: Show us your self portrait!

Wow Eileen- this is a great thread I think selfportraits are very revealing! and not just the outer layers if you know what I mean Probably why I have never done one, per se. I think like most artists, I have a tendency to put something of myself into all the protraits and figural paintings I do. Not intentionally but it just seem to happen. Then I have to get myself "Out" of the painting.

I think I may just take your challenge up on this though. Just to see how it goes. If this thread will be around awhile, I will post it when I am done. I have two paintings on the easel right now, but I should be finished with one this week, then I can start the selfportrait. Now the Q is.... do I use a photo or a mirror???????

It would be exciting if you use a mirror.

Simon - very nice portrait.

You're right, it is more exciting using a mirror. I was going to use a mirror, but I wanted a smiling avatar and in reality I just can't smile that long so I hunted down a picture of me smiling. The mirror is more honest and telling, though, isn't it?

Jules - why don't you flip your avatar pic horizontally. This way you would be looking "inside". ;-)

Re: Show us your self portrait!

I was thrilled to visit the forum and see all of these fabulous self portraits!!


whistler'smother - that is a charming self portrait. Just excellent for a beginner in drawing.

del villar - I agree - very cool to see the two side by side.

Steven - I am particularly fond of this one - your line work is wonderful.

maneh - I recognize this from your avatar, but it's wonderful to see the whole thing. I hope you will post your next one here as well!

Hello Tia! Great to meet you! From reading your posts, I had a feeling you were a lovely lady, and I was right!

Mr. Shop - I remember this one, and I'm so glad you posted it here. Thanks for responding to the invite!

Janet - both are beautiful, but I especially like the first one, with the wonderful vibrant color.

Anita - gorgeous and thoughtful - exactly how I pictured you to be!

Welcome, Petra! I find your self portrait very appealing - I love artwork that makes me think. Very exciting work!

Simon - terrific work! This portrait has a zestful energy about it.

Jodi, great to see you here! I did mine from a mirror, and had great fun doing it. I will look forward to seeing yours!

Lisa - I've seen yours, and you are one beautiful lady, no doubt about it.


Hey Cathleen, how about yours??


Here's mine - done from a mirror, hence that look of intense concentration.

Yours is great too Eileen. You look very cute in this picture. Is this oil pastel?

I fixed my right eye that was bothering me and in between the eyes. I am glad you liked it. Here is the detailed view:
