Self-Portrait Paintings

The students in Art III concluded the 1st semester with a self-portrait painting study in oil paint. The students examined a variety of artists who represented themselves through portraiture, including Artemisia Gentileschi, Rembrandt van Rijn, John Singer Sargent, Loïs Mailou Jones, Frida KahloKehinde Wiley and others. The students also studied oil paint mixing and painting techniques, which covered the creation of skin tones, utilizing various oil paint mediums, and using complementary colors to enrich highlight and mid-tone values. Below are examples from the 1st and 7th hour Art III classes from 2016 – 2017.
