Blue cap on Mimi mirror portrait #12

February 13th, 2011 Leave a comment Go to comments


I finally found time to paint today. This time I want you to see normal me. I often wear a hat like this when I am working in the yard or driving on a sunny day. This painting is a little large, so I am not able to put it on my scanner, thus it is a bit distorted since I took a photo of it with my digital camera. I used watercolor paints, and the way I did it was by painting my own face by looking in a mirror. It is the 12th of a series. I started doing these mirror self portraits because it is an extremely good learning tool. It’s also a technique that has been used by artists for over 500 years.

Do you like my hat? Good bye!

    Love the hat, but I love you even better. This painting is very true to you. Do you have short hair in real life? If so, I guess I didn’t realize it.
