Re: Self Portraits join in the fun!

Here is a "self" portrait I did years ago. More of a charactcature (SP?).This is done in guache' on hot pressed board.



I think I need to work on a newer more serious one maybe.

Re: Self Portraits join in the fun!



I posted this in a separate thread to get crits before I turn it in, as it's my final project in Painting III. 24 x 30 oil on canvas. I think I progressed a great deal this semester in my understanding of chroma temp and value to create dimension. This site has helped a lot in getting things corrected before my instructor sees them ;P Thank you all for that!

Thanks Bethany. I regret doing it on sugar paper now.

Becca, this is a lively loose work! I can never get the watercolours to do what I want - so I admire anyone who paints with them.

Just a little fun. I did a graphite of my face smushed on a xerox machine. Just wanted to shake it up a little

Nice work on both portraits tamcafe!
It is always interesting to do many different versions of our faces!

Re: Self Portraits join in the fun!

Hi! I am usually on the Watercolors Forum - I recently attempted a Self Portrait and one of the members on the WC forum directed me to this thread, so here I am! Thanks for looking!

Welcome, reikiart! I like your 'minimalist' approach with the watercolour.

Re: Self Portraits join in the fun!

Good work Anthony, looks inspiring already, waiting for the next stage.

The paintings on your website are superb--worth much more than you're charging I think.
