Self Portraits.

After the classes in portrait painting, I've been all into portraits, but have only myself as a model. So... last week I took a mirror into my studio and did a couple of self portraits. These are 2 of them which look a little bit like me. I have found that I am much more comfortable doing portraits from life than from photo, which surprises me.

I have also been doing some sketches from my living room window. Check out Urban Sketchers - Indianapolis for some of these!


  1. Nice portraits. I'm going to try the same thing next. Very intimidating.

  2. Nice portraits Karen.
    Painting from life is better. What do you think it is? Our 3D vision!
    Has to be... doesn't it?
