I've finally embarked on my self portrait journey. I'm super excited to be doing such a large scale project because eventually i'll be able to show it in my portfolio. First I drew myself from a picture onto a larger piece of paper. We will be using tempera batik as the technique for our portraits so I then began to experiment on a smaller scale with different colors. I decided to do my large portrait in blue, after it is painted i will ink it and work back into it with colored pencil. I can't wait to get to school everyday and work on this project. It's so satisfying because when I look at it, it actually looks like me and that feels like a huge accomplishment!
