I think everyone has issues about how they see themselves, no matter how good looking they are (or not), or think they are (or not). So when I was asked to create a self-portrait for a friend’s blog, it was quite confronting.
A lot of artists have created self-portraits, using them as a tool to learn better how to paint portraits using themselves as the model. I have done a pencil sketch in the past, but that was not for general consumption.
So, here it is, still a work in progress, but at a stage I am willing to share. It is funny but because it was my own face, I felt very strange about posting the early WIPs of the painting. Something about feeling incomplete I think.
