Studying Schiele

Self Portrait        9" x 12",       Mixed Media

Hello! This is my first self-portrait. LOL! It's also an exercise from Misty Mawn's new class. It is the first week and I am over the moon about how awesome this class is. 

Without revealing too much of the content, we were to study an artist whose work has influenced us. I chose Egon Schiele. We were to replicate one work of theirs to the best of our ability and then do a self-portrait in that artist's style.

Self Portrait by Egon Schiele

Here was my attempt at this. SO incredibly hard to draw those hands!!


I loved really studying his work and trying to capture every line. So much learned from just this one exercise. 

I am probably going to make a change in my blog header soon...  ;)

Linking this to Paint Party Friday  and Art Journal Journey. Have a great weekend everybody!

I am also working on a new wolf painting and tons of other things. Stay tuned...

Oh wow, I'm in love with that self-portrait ..... Gorgeous. Love the clean lines and the limited use of colour. And I think you did a great job on the hands in your replica piece!

Great self portrait and I think you're capturing the spirit of Egon Schiele's work. Hands are difficult for everyone, I think. Yours are very expressive. Thanks for sharing your work!

You are a quick study, that's for sure! Your self portrait is really good. I think the hands on the copy exercise are also good. Hey, when you're good, you're good. You are good!
