Here are an additional five self portraits that I found accessible enough to photograph and bring this series of randomness, which includes the previous two posts, to somewhat of a conclusion, with thirteen for now. Some more may show up later. These five are a sample of different media as there are a couple made with oil on paper, and one acrylic on paper, the other two are drawings, one colored pencil on watercolor paper and the other a more traditional charcoal on paper. A couple are untitled for now – the titles will probably show up soon.
The following two Long Self Portraits are an example of the playing around with what I have at the moment. For these two I cut an 18 by 23 and a quarter paper in half and used both halves of the paper for the portraits. In this particular instance I worked on both at the same time.
Here’s an example of a few elements fused together, the realism in the facial features, in the expression, and somewhat on the skin tones, the chaotic lines surrounding everything, and the colored graffiti or thicket of vines.
