Self Portrait

Image/Painting

This is my final work, there are two girls in this painting

/The rose flower girl/

she looks innocent, pure and beautiful. Her heart is as clean as crystal. She is delicate, just like rose flower, but also warm hearted, just like like fire.

/The clown girl/

She is not a pretty girl, but she is very cool, and has strong personality. There are very dark and evil part in her heart, she looks like a clown, always smiling, but you will never know what is her real thought.
.But, these two girls are not real me, there are some clues inside the painting, the girl is upside down, there is frame around the painting, and there is a “truth” (This is my first tattoo, and it represent me)in the painting.

 

 

In all, this is the true me.

 

 

 

Here is my first version

 

 

 

 

In this painting, I used 8 elements

.For the rose flower girl
crystal(which is my favourite material)/water color/ marker /flowers/
.For the clown girl
water color/ marker/ clown symbol/ word/
A frame for the whole picture

 

 

 

 

This is my plan before I start to paint, and I made some alternative scheme.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

I think there are dark and light sides in my heart, and I want to use watercolor to express my emotion, so I took a photo of myself in shadow.

 

 

 

I draw the face in golden ratio

 

 

 

 

 

and use water color to draw it. I left the rose flower girl as the light side.

 

 

 

 

I tried different ways to paint the hair, I once wanted to use marker for both girls,
but I found water color works better for the rose flower girl.

 

 

 

 

  Then I used pencil, water color to draw the eye, and changed its color in photoshop to math the color in the whole painting.

 

 

 

 

Then I took some crystal pictures, and use photoshop to match them on the face

 

I paint background for the next step
I drew different flowers

 

I scanned them in photoshop, and made some changes
I tried to create them into different feelings.

 

 

I also tried water color, but it didn’t work very well

 

For the clown girl, I created some clown faces

 

 

At last, I combined all these elements, and added the fame and the “truth”.
