Daily painting: self portrait, pink and purple

oil painting portrait on canvas
Self portrait in pink and purple, 30 x 30 cm, oil on canvas, ©2011 Julie Galante.

I didn’t set out to paint myself using mostly two colors, but somehow this is what I ended up with at the end of the afternoon. I haven’t decided yet if I’ll keep working on it or leave it as-is. The background is just blank canvas at the moment.

This painting was done from life, me staring at my reflection in a small mirror propped up on my art table next to my easel.

  1. This is fantastic and so connected to what I have been writing today. I facilitate a writing group and our warm up/invocation was “Word-love, show myself to me.”

    I feel like your self portrait was something like “Color-love, show myself to me.” I love this on so many levels and am so grateful to have found you via Creative Every Day today.

    ahhhh, delighted shouts of joy. THANK YOU!

    Here via ICLW. Love the pictures… you have a very obvious talent. I need to find time to come back and look some more (have just realised that I’m an hour past when I usually go to bed and I was planning for an earlier night. Ooops)
