Experimenting with my Self Portrait

I decided to do some experimenting on self portraits today, as I have never done one before . Let me tell you it sure was a big challenge. Geez, I have never even painted a face before. But I had some fun - an that's what counts!

Anyways, I think I will stick to my usual work...LOL. I am no Kim Barker when it comes to portraits! Have a great Sunday Everyone!

Anyways, here are my results: 1st in water-soluable pencil colour:

Then painted over with some water and acrylic

Hi Lisa
Your first self portrait is terrific - the way that you made your eyes the focal point...and your identity is stamped all over it...such a happy...exuberant face.....very stylish too....no doubt about who the artist is!!!
I would like to think if I changed to painting landscapes I could be as sucessful as you in making the leap.....well done ....I hope you are going to frame it....have a great day mate!!!
