I had been working on my self-portrait to enter into a self-portrait painting competition for the last few weeks.
I finally finished the painting on Monday.
What do you think?
I’ll show you the painting process.
First I did an underdrawing. I’m using a Winsor & Newton Artist’s Watercolour 300gsm Cold Pressed paper
Putting colours in watercolour. Shadows and darkest areas first
Putting more colours in
Started painting the background
Adding textures with pastel
Adding highlights with white pastel
Here is the finished painting ‘The Artist in Green Summer Dress’
Hope everyone is having a nice weekend:)
I’m currently running a 15% off sale on my Artfinder shop until June 30.

Today I went to see an exhibition called ‘Inventing Impressionism‘ at National gallery in London.
It was a beautiful exhibition, with many famous paintings by Monet, Renoir and Degas.
If you love impressionism, I highly recommend visiting. Ends this week so if you are in London don’t miss it!
Hello hope you are having a nice weekend:)
I’m currently working on self-portraits to enter into a competition.
I’ve finished one painting and I wanted to show you.
First I did a rough underpainting in pastel
Then started painting over it using acrylics
Started using paint rollers to paint more intuitively
Started using bright orange and yellow acrylic paints because I like bright colours and I wanted the painting to look cheerful
and here is the finished piece..! what do you think?
