Fast self-por­trait

Project details

2018 Salzburg In­ter­na­tion­al Sum­mer­academy of Fine Arts: This year at Sum­mer Academy I was fo­cus­ing on a more faster ap­proach. One of my first works there was this por­trait paint­ing. The aim was to cap­ture the fig­ure very fast and set up some quick out­lines to roughly define the head.

After that, bravely drawing any fat shapes, to get an overview of the basic structure of the head. Finishing the portrait with large self-confident brush strokes and shapes. Stopping after not even two hours to not overdo it.
