The terrified self portrait

2019, Myself, Paintings

This self portrait attempt was made using a photo and the grid transfer method. Even so I kept arriving at a terrified expression that did not exist in the photo (probably helped along by the deep fold of canvas right across the forehead). Back and forth between layering paint on and wiping it off again…

Oh the anxiety!

Finally I got pissed and trashed the whole thing. But I think my 6yo niece finds it amusing – so that’s something.

Oh vey!
