Diary of Faces week 1 painting

I’m back to faces, and I’ve been taking the Diary of Faces online class with Sharon Tomlinson of http://allnorahsart.blogspot.com/  In this class we are recreating faces painted by foreign artists. I found a self-portrait by Zinaida Serebriakova done in 1930 that I really liked and cropped it leaving just the head and shoulders. The full painting can be seen by clicking the artist’s name.

Zinaida Serebriakova Self-Portrait


This is my rendition. It doesn’t look the same and no one is going to mistake it for the original but I am very happy with the result.
