Self Portrait

This is my latest work in progress.I am painting from a photo with not much of drama.
Thought of painting a self portrait.


  1. Your self-portrait is coming along nicely! Can't wait to see it finished. Great color choices

  2. You're a handsome man, Rishi!


    Your jawline in the painting looks a touch too small compared with your real life photo posted on your blog.

    Yours appears to be much more fuller and masculine than the portrait IMHO.


  3. Terrific job on the self-portrait! I like your Dream Girl too. You have a great way with eyes!

  4. nice work rishi! first time to ur blog! is impressive!

  5. a very sensitive piece of work, Rishi. Self-portrait artists have to paint from photos - or mirrors - we can't paint from life! only ever from a 2D image. But don't worry too much about getting every detail to look a photo. You already have the photo, so why create a second one? Use a phocopier.

    Far more important is 'making a good painting', in my opinion. And that means letting your own living feelings and insights come through in your painting. I feel that has been achieved with this portrait. I love the tender melancholy around the eyes.

    i lovely piece of work

  6. My cousin recommended this blog and she was totally right keep up the fantastic work!

Florentina , a beautiful lass on a bright sunny day.
My wife selected this picture which I enjoyed painting.
I love the vibrant colours . The best part I painted the major part of the painting in two hours.
I guess I am improving.
