Self Portrait

Post by CluedoKid » Mon Nov 22, 2010 2:38 am

Self Portrait, acrylic, 8 x 10, 2010

By all means, an exaggeration of my true appearence, but I completed it under two hours with little to none reference from a mirror. This is the first painting I've done in eons, and I'm quite happy with the result.

Dark, Creepy and Mysterious. I love it.

Though your hair is more blond. Though that could just be the light.

Actually, would it surprise you that I'm naturally blonde? As I grew up, my hair darkened.

Well done. I wish I had the slightest bit of artistic talent.
How do you know what kind of pictures they are if you're such a lay-dee?

Very nice! It catches your facial expressions and structures!

Thanks!

Perhaps it's that time of year to do some Clue paintings. The holidays are coming up soon. :)

The same as me then. Though my hair is more brown now.
