A Self Portrait Painting

A couple of weeks ago, I taught a “Self Portrait Painting” workshop.  This is my sample painting.

Actually, it’s my first painted self-portrait.  I’ve done a few self-portrait photographs when I needed to update my headshot, but never a painting.

I worked with a limited color palette that was influenced by the beautiful paintings by Leonardo Da Vinci. It was a bit different approach than my usual colorful palette.

We had a great time in the workshop and it was so fun to see all the different paintings.

Have you worked with a limited palette lately?

Or created a self-portrait?

Have a wonderful, creative, day, Janell

  2. I think a self portrait would be such a challenge–I can’t even take selfies with my cell phone! You really captured a classical look and a pensive expression with your pose and color palette.

  3. Thanks, Susan. It was interesting, my aunt had just passed away and I needed to get the painting done as the class was the next day, my sadness came out in the painting.


I would love to hear your thoughts.
