Course: Beginning Painting

Medium: Oil on Canvas

Combining a master copy with self portrait, this assignment encourages students to look at and mimic an artist’s stroke, composition and colors. Students are instructed to pick an artist from a supplied list or propose an artist to take inspiration from. Working from a mirror, or reference photos, students then create a painting of themselves using the style of their chosen artist.
From top to bottom these works were inspired by:
Nathaniel Mary Quinn, Vincent Van Gogh, Pablo Picasso, Margaret Keane
