After seeing a collection of Frida Kahlo portraits at a local shop, portraits on tile, postcards, key chains etc.. all by different artist, I became curious to do my own Frida portrait. I went online to research and learned that fifty-five of her 143 paintings are self portraits she said "I paint self-portraits because I am so often alone. because I am the person I know best".
I like this picture , that's why I posted it but I know I've got a lot to learn about pastels, portraits and even my own style it will probably be a while before I can do a portrait and truly be happy with the results. Meanwhile I practice. Here's a good link with photos of Frida and a small sampling of her
(pastel on 9 x 12 paper)
- My Art Place, A place to express & challange myself & display my art and exchange with other artist. I love working in pastels, chalks. I would love to learn watercolor. I love to play with my chalks, watch a picture develope and expression thru art! My other love is the Childrens book Series I've been collaborating on with my talented niece! Cheers!
