Steal Yourself


Botticelli's Portrait of a Youth
Portrait of a Middle Aged Woman/Self
oil pastel, tempera, ebony pencil, and India ink, on Rives BFK, 15" x 22"
A class demo drawing for my portraiture class at The Farnsworth. The self-portrait assignment was to steal a painting and make it your own.

Wonderful demo...you captured the hand in all it's character. I remember painting hands that looked like a bunch of bananas! ha Very expressive.

Thanks, Blue Sky! I have drawn a few banana fingers in my day! :^)
