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.
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.
