Here’s a new self portrait charcoal drawing. It measure 24 x 32 inches.
I decided to do it as Self Portraiture is a major theme of fine art and for some reason I thought it was about time to do another. I occasionally do them.
Many artists have focused on Self Portraits because you are always available to pose.
How we look to others and how we look to ourselves can be quite different. As an artist you can capture something the camera cannot.
Some of my students have made portraits of me which seem to show different parts of my of character and inner nature. Drawings (or paintings) can reveal parts of us we find hard to put into words.
What do you think?
