Here is #2 out of 36 for the new Selfie Project. It's 8" x 8" oil on linen - the linen is 5 feet by 5 feet and contains 36 squares for portraits. I'm doing brief instructional videos for every painting and then I'll also use the footage for a final project documentary. The video for today's posting can be viewed here: https://youtu.be/Cjlek4OUJ3s
I love how this project is progressing. It's important to note that I'm not just copying the photos - but I am selecting them for particular qualities they convey to me and then painting them in a manner that conveys those qualities - so while the likeness will be there - the paintings will never be a photographic copy of the reference work.
