First portrait / self-portrait… It took 7 (!) sessions to get to this, and they were all really terrifying! I wasn’t sure I could get to something decent, so I am really happy with this.
I’m too afraid to sketch or paint others (in case I make them look terrible) so I’m planning on only making self portraits or pictures of strangers until I get better. This doesn’t look exactly like me but the distortion looks pretty good anyway. 🙂
I think I’m going to start painting on bigger canvases for certain subjects. It was a bit of torture painting all these objects on a 16″ x 20″ canvas …felt like I was painting in miniature.
I found some old sketches at my parents’ home…from over 20 years ago. They were mostly done for a sketching class I took in college and after that. It’s so nice to find these now that I’m back to making art again.
