We continued , some of my students and, I , to take the the self portrait study a step forward to a more representational way. We really enjoy this part
Awesome and unique portrait.
very interestig self portrait.....I just had a conversation about self portraits and the weird intensity that is achieved from staring into a mirror...it ends up being more about how artist "looks hard" (or with concentration) than what is within them...their personality or spirit...at least this is what I think...your brushstrokes and color choices tell more about you than the image ....
Wow! It is great! I love the expression and the colors! I like it! Like it!
Richard Thank you!
Christina, David Leffel has a book on selfportraits and he encourage people to do as many as you can. This is the first time i do one staring myself on the mirror, and I guess you are right, the tendency is to be more focus on strokes, color light, than in what this "person" is feeling. I thought it was because of the eyes of my students were on me all the time but I realize that I ´ll need more experience to convey emotions also. Thank you for commenting it was enlighten!
Letyu muchas gracias por tan entusiasta comentario!
Raul, I love the mix of realism and abstract background. Incredible work!
Marvellous painting! the brushstrokes(background) and the few extra touches of red, enhancing it all!
This is such a good self portrait. I read recently that we don't see our selves as others do because when we look in a mirror our face is reversed so does this make it a reverse of what others see????
A wonderful painting!
Celia many thanks!
Elizabeth thank you , you are right the red touches are made intentionally!
Wet paper thank for commenting. I´´ve given some thought and you are right, if we see ourselves in a normal mirror the reflection is not what other people see. You have to see yourself in two mirrors forming a 90 degreees angle then you can se yourself the way other people see you. Does this happen with a photo? mhhh.
Alexandra, thank you!!
Well done! Very interesting selfportrait !
Thank you Ciusca!
