A Self Portrait

Art, Workshopsmadebymrsm

A challenging topic for the last few weeks at art class... Self portraits in the style of another artist. I keep getting portraits to do and I'm not really very good at them! Practice makes a little better though! I chose to paint my portrait in the style of Tamara de Lempika and despite finding it quite tricky, I really enjoyed doing it. There's the (more or less) finished article...

I think it needs a little tweaking but I'm terrible at getting around to finishing these things off!

Tamara de Lempika has been a long time favourite of mine, and I knew I'd never do her justice but I had to have a go. My painting is in acrylics rather than oils (although my tutor mentioned in the last session that I should really have a go with oils next term (eeek!)).

Here are the images I was inspired by...

I went a bit crazy for the gold paint (which may end up becoming a regular feature!
